Guide I saw had this problem at V2, I doubt it would be considered a V3 by too many consistent at the grade. At least the other V3's I attempted during my visit felt substantially stiffer than this one. Sep 8, 2006

Been noticing a lot of grade descrepencies between mountain project & guide book...this problem, although fun and a bit highball, in the book is v2, not v3...i tend to agree with the consensus grade v2...grade rating is seemingly becoming to contrived as time goes on...climb it and have fun... be safe y'all.

For what its worth, I used all of the drilled holes with my left hand and the arete only for the right hand, b/c I thought that's what the route description was saying. getting both hands on the arete made it a lot easier. Fun climb though, especially using the drilled holes. Apr 17, 2012

IMO if you only use the arete for the last move to the lip I'd call it v3-4. Nov 22, 2017
