I finally checked the guidebook at the gym, but it doesn't look like the climb I was shown is described in the book as it neither starts on a chest high edge or a stand start. The V5 in this picture starts down in the crack, kind of where Left Ling-Chi is said to start in the book. Anyways, we should start naming these Unnamed climbs... Oct 23, 2016

Oh I see, did you climb left into the unnamed V4 (the warmup that goes up the dihedral), or right into Cadillac King V6? Or did you do something else?

The temple is a very chaotic wall to accurately document, many of the lines require a precise/contrived description of holds which are on and those that are not. I definitely agree that all the problems should have names. The temple, as you know, got developed by strong climbers who were not interested in V5s, hence the lack of naming. Oct 24, 2016
