Tuff problem. I couldnt get but a few moves off the ground. Anyone got some beta for this. Maybe I'm missing something. Oct 1, 2009

Name and grade updated on consensus. If anyone else knows of other boulder problems where the name is wrong or FA needs updating, let me know, I try to pick these off when I see them but there are a lot... Apr 8, 2010
If you finish this on the arete proper and not step left onto the other block it must be V3 or V4. I started with the undercling (also on Venus) and worked my left hand up the arete, then was attempting to hit the finish hold of Venus to top out. Is this the original line? Sep 10, 2011

I think the left block is supposed to be off since it's separated, but I usually just start and stay on the arete (not start over right on Venus undercling). Def harder than V1, but not in line with other V4's at DL. Somewhere in between is always gray for me. If you started on the Venus undercling and moved up that way maybe it would V4.

PS. What are you doing online. The boulder bash starts in 2 hours. Get a move on! Sep 10, 2011
