The red line. V8, possible much harder.


The crux is the first move off of a bad left hand chip crimp and poor right hand sloper crimp. Pick some feet and toss up to the quartz starting holds of Pound for Pound.

I have not done this route, I have tried it, but I am adding it so people know it is out there.

There is rumor that this route is much harder than than v8 that it was originally given, not sure if something broke or the people who told me this and I have missed something.


Basically under the top out jug of Randy Moss, it is an obvious crimp and sloper you start on, on the steep wall.


Pad and spotter.

Has anyone actually climbed this route? I tried it the other day and it feels very hard, harder than v8...
