Description Suggest change

Double Vee is a classic example of Cathedral 5.9+ and can feel really stiff until you get the beta dialed in. Then it only feels a little stiff. I know the first time I did it I threw in a few 5.12 moves where I could have saved some energy with better beta. It looks much more easy and straightforward than it is, so brace yourself...

Climb mostly face holds along a thin crack through the first "vee" notch. This gets you to a nice rest stance. Then head in to the second "vee" (small nut for protection) and on to a surprisingly challenging mantel finish.

Location Suggest change

To the right of Nut Cracker, look for the thin crack leading through two "vee" grooves. Hard to miss.

Protection Suggest change

Regular rack with small nuts and TCUs to a tree with fixed rap anchor.
