Description

Super classic Flag Favorite. In the [Amphitheatre] Right Wall are slots from head heigth (middle left) up and right to jug system at top. Worth it just for the top out! So fun and a long overdue addition to the website.

Pad or two and spotter.

Rating this problem is not easy but comparing it to the Red Wall "V3s" is even more difficult as none of them are actually V3 except in Phil Benningfield's imagination/guidebook. I wouldn't call OHT V3 either but V1 is a bit stiff. However that is typical for Flag. Sep 3, 2009

Read the above comment: sorry, but at least relative to the other routes nearby, this is just V1. You can give it a + if you're using pluses. V2 would be Crystal Mantel on Pebble Boulder, which is definitely harder. Check out the V3s on Red Wall for sample of that grade.
These are stiff ratings compared to some other places, but maybe inline with others (J Tree). What can you say--V scale is whacked like others, and hard to compare across areas. Sep 3, 2009

This is written in the Colorado Bouldering guidebook as being V1 R, which it does deserve the R rating...but V1 is absolutely sandbagged. Apr 14, 2009
