Lily Cornett on Revenge, V6.

  • Description 

    Sit start in the back of the overhang and move up and left using heel hooks. The farther left you go at the end, the easier it is to top out.


    Revenge is the rightmost problem on the boulder.


    Watch that rock below and behind you.

    This problem is contrived to stay at around V6. There is a huge crack to the right, which has become the standard start. Above where the crack ends is a huge right hand slot, which is not considered "on". Using this slot knocks a couple of V grades off the problem (probably V4), and allows one to avoid the best moves on the problem. For full value, don't use the large crack on the right either.

    There is a nice pumpy extension to this problem that traverses left on jugs after the crux and moves up the V3ish finger crack to top out above the warmups. Maybe V7+?
