If you've climbed it, V7. If you haven't, V6.

That's how ratings work, right?

Actually it's usually V7 if you haven't but V6 if you have. Gotta sandbag. Rob Gordon

Back when I was hanging around there, pre crashpad days, we called it 5.11+ and climbed it conga line style chalkless in EBs. You young fellers are just soft. Will S

Definitely V7 in my case. And a hard one at that!

Good point. I guess I was thinking more about the potential spray factor.

Also a good point. American climbing where spray is half the game. Rob Gordon

My buddy and I were just there. He thought solid 7 with the tricky top, and considering I'm projecting at about that grade right now, it felt just barely doable...I'd take a proud 7 if I did it Zane Dordai
