Great moves up a right leaning arete and scoop. Start as for Iced Tea on the large undercling and pull out right to a crimpy sidepull in the scoop. Work your feet across good edges and follow the arete up and to the right either by hugging the arete and small slopers out right or by laying back with a high left foot. Harder than it looks.


On Old Gold - the boulder directly behind the Whip - this problem climbs the scoop and arete right of the small roof formed by a large undercling. Downclimb jugs next to a tree.

To the right of this line is a cool little party trick problem. Not sure what it's called. Starts on two three quarter undercling crimps. Establish your feet on the boulder and jump to the lip. Best problem in the park! Always gives me a chuckle to do this thing.

Quite possibly my least favorite V3 of all time, but that said, give it a go if you haven't.
I do a big move off the sidepull in the scoop and the arete, but the arete hand is constantly just a little insecure and inching off slowly. Desperate and annoying, but hey, I hadn't done it before in five fall seasons at Pawtuckaway, so it's something new.
