Description [Suggest Change]

This is on the first boulder on your left as you walk over the stream. It looks kinda like a tooth. Climb the left arete at V5 and the right arete at V0+ ***.

Protection [Suggest Change]

New shoes.

i know this is the [Poudre] and all, where stiff ratings rule ... but this problem is most definitely harder than V5.

BTW - the top jug is very sharp - it will cut you bigtime if you fail to stop the plunge back to earth when you latch the top.

This climb is only a tad harder than Hank's Lunge. If you know the beta, it's not sandbagged at all.
