Description

Work your way up and then dyno to a large jug. Then up to the top. Can be done static as well but it takes more skill.

Location

Just left of the lieback rail at the start of the lieback.

Short, but super fun. I found being tall a big advantage in reaching the so-called launch hold. Very satisfying latching onto the ledge. Feb 6, 2016

Looks like quite a lot of chipping has happened here and the footholds are incredibly polished. Jan 19, 2015

Logan, totally agree, and thanks for confirming MP grades are working like I thought they would! I'll add the V scales to the other routes you mentioned, too. Sep 19, 2014

Justin it did unlock the ability to vote in the "Hueco" scale. I just did it. Having both I think is the best of both worlds! Thanks! Sep 18, 2014

Logan, I tried adding V0 as an alternate grade, not sure the practical effect it will have on consensus grading here though. Can you go back and let me know if that unlocked your ability to vote in the "Hueco" scale?

This area is, IMHO, a fine example of the shortcomings of the V- scale. YDS gives fine accuracy in the single digit 5.s, whereas V- dismisses all of the gradation as "too easy to bother with." V0s and V-easy or V-basic grades get misapplied to many routes that aren't that hard, making the art of climbing needlessly obscure to beginners. I dream of a world that uses a sensible full range, egalitarian pure decimal scale like the Ewbank! ... har har.... Sep 18, 2014

It's fun. Love this boulder in general. Did this problem for the first time barefoot. It's not as slick as it seems...I lost a good size piece of my toe pad, bleeding, on that smear. Oct 26, 2012

I agree hands are good, I don't usually dyno this, more fun to work feet up and stretch for the ledge. Sep 27, 2012

Why is everyone rating this in 5.10?? Not a hard climb unless you count for the polished foot hold, but still. Sep 13, 2012

More dead point than dyno. V0+ Jul 12, 2012
This one got harder when the launching hold broke.. used to be a flat horizontal incut for both hands. For bonus points go both hands! Jul 9, 2007
