i have seen both ratings for JU in Ibex, Utah (The Red Monster Boulder). v6 and v7. Which one is it? Opinions?
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.
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.
Also a good point. American climbing where spray is half the game.
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
