|Candidate for World's Hardest V2.|

V2 ... Right!!!
B1 is the correct grade, which typically translates into V4 on Flag. I'd say that's just about right, assuming you are beginning from a sit on using opposing slopers underneath the bulge on the far right. Guidebooks are a useful indicator of grades, but that's just about it. Think for yourself when you add problems to the database.

|A considerable amount of core tension is required to get off the ground, then heel hooks and a long arm span help to finish this deceiving little problem. Hard for V2 (hard for V3) but a really enjoyable boulder problem.|

|Sorry I broke off a teeeeny, sharp intermediate the other day right below that last pebble. Being short, this 2 finger crimper was the key to one of my favorite flag problems. Still goes!|

|Feels like a solid V3. The pump factor makes the move to the large pebble feel pretty desperate for me.|
