Description

One of the best V7's in Minnesota, and unique for Sawmill. This problem is a stand start on the slot jug, then immediately goes onto the 45 overhang. With these nice skin-friendly holds, work your way up the center of the face towards the dihedral. Prepare for a cool but scary finish move. Be careful of the huge opening to your right.

Protection

I would recommend 3 pads at the least, drape one pad over the large boulder and attach one of it's straps on the tree stump to hold it.

I agree with the description above. The best problem I ever did or tried at Sawmill, probably one of the best problems I've ever been on. Bring at least two spotters and three or four pads, though. Nov 19, 2007

I haven't been on every problem in Minnesota, but I can say this is the best conquest I've had since I've moved here. 4 stars all the way. Super classic ending. I have secret beta for the crux if anyone wants it. Oct 18, 2008
