Start on the lowest jugs and climb straight up, using a perfect sculpted pinch and a body twist.


Around the middle of the Monster Roof is a cluster of bushes. This problem starts just to the right of these bushes on low pockets.


Pad and spotter.

Are you sure this isn't "Pinching the Loaf"? Awesome problem.

This sounds like the problem that is called Hot Liquid Life in Jason and Zak's guide. The Bread Loaf is a v5 further right on this wall, starts with a funky traverse left on some pockets with a heel hook, goes to matched pinches on the 'bread loaf' sloper, then up.

This is indeed the one called Hot Liquid Life in the e-guide, it seems like there's a lot of disagreement over some of the names they used. Guess it depends on who you talk to.

Yeah I was confused after seeing this and then being told bread loaf was v5. Haha yeah hot liquid life is the one being described here.

Not much of a "loaf" to pinch on this, but I did try the problem to the right with an obvious bread loaf pinch. Lots of confusion for this area on MP. Is there a definitive guide for everything now?
