Description

This innocuous little feature on the far right side of Cloudshadow, often graded V0 in various guides, has seen a number of sketchfests, starting with not getting off the ground and finishing with pitching off the top slab (not wise). Pull into the corner using the sloper, stand up, and then figure out how to get to the good holds above without using your hands. Usually this feels harder to me than the Consideration, hence the upgrade from V0.

I always wondered where this V0 could be, because I could never get off the ground! All looked hard and sharp. Nice to hear you grade it V2. Dec 19, 2011

Well now, I don't get out and boulder all that much, but I feel like 15-20 tries to get to the top of a 12' V0 is a little excessive. If you're ever looking for a problem to bring down your (or your partner's) confidence a few notches, give this one a go. Awesome! Aug 4, 2013
Especially if you start a move below on the undercling and a right hand on the sloper (not the sloper in the crack), it's definitely a fun V2. Feb 1, 2017
