Lee Faria. The tree looks close, but provided you ...


The area classic hard problem. Involves heinous crimping and a difficult high step, which leads to very unnerving, delicate face moves over a potentially gnarly fall. If you blow it at the top, you could literally fall off the mountain or best case scenario, end up in a tree.

Apparently Matt Birch wouldn't even shoe up to try it because of it's intimidating appearance and narrow landing.


10 feet right of The V6. Starts on a high right handed pinch (can be started 2 moves lower, but it's doubtful if it adds extra difficulty). Start the same as per Live Late Breaking News, but after latching the heinous right handed edge, veer left out onto the blank prow. Make the hard, delicate crimp moves and top out.

Dropping from the highest point will put you onto the pads, but blowing it is well...not encouraged.
