Fun pulling on painful crimps. With great feet through the difficult moves, it's really a hand-beta challenge. Find the answer that makes the most sense for you!


Start on low jugs just right of tree, pull up through painful crimps to crux triangular flake above head-height. Gaston up left and finish on jug above the big horizontal shelf, or continue through to top.


Single pad.
(Or a whole squad of spotters for the 25-foot topout.)

I don't remember that this was done bitd, so it may be a new route.

Seems too obvious to be new. I thought it was a touch harder than V5, though I wasn't killing it the day I tried it...

I would agree that it seems too obvious to be new. Joe, give it a rating and we'll see where the consensus falls. I was thinking it was harder 'til the quick send, so I wouldn't rule it out...

I wonder if something broke in the last few years, making a better hold, because I remember it being quite a bit more desperate before. We'll have to see if Whitey remembers. He certainly would have been able to do a tweaky V5 or 6 back then. He said he will try to make up some topos of this and the main crag for us. Did any of you guys top out yet? : ))

This climb is awesome and the topout wasn't bad at all. Just tall.
