Crux at the bulge. Just like a v5 boulder problem. Don't forget the right heel hook at the bulge, otherwise it's probably a 13.


35 feet left of My Dog Has Fleas.


Four bolts; cold shuts for anchors.

There's nothing remotely close to v5 on this route. From a bomber hand jam rest climb 10 feet of v3 to the anchors. Oh yeah, be sure to grunt loudly for the gawkers.

Must agree, this route is indeed soft. The crux is fun but reminds me more of a V3 boulder move. Can definitely imagine this being much harder in the summer time heat.

One move wonder. If you are trying to break into the grade this is a good route to get on.
