There is at least one more independent line between the 2 V2's listed that starts from high holds. Apr 6, 2010
I've always heard it called not only the "tennis shoe problem" but the rock referred to as "tennis shoe boulder"

I also recall 3 or maybe even 5 different problems between the V2-V3 problems. Some of the problems were just eleminate contrivances or starting left instead of right hand, etc...

Edit: Sorry, I meant between the V2s. At least two independent lines and pbbly a 3rd before you start adding variants. There's the high dish stuff and then a thing left and right of the dish. Apr 6, 2010

Back in the late 70's, the left route was commonly referred to as the "tennis shoe problem" There is a V3-ish problem just to the right which goes up to a prominent quartz crystal pocket just over the lip on some very thin edging. I recall another problem just to the just to the right of the crystal problem but before you come to the crack (shown V2 in the photo). Mar 28, 2010
