Repeated this line again today with the direct top out and thought it was around V5. I always heard the direct top out is V5 and going into the top out of the ManEater is V4. I say pick your own adventure! Oct 12, 2014

I used a crimp side pull, located immediately above the baseball pinch, and a left toehook in the slot to transition in to the mantle. Sep 12, 2013

Nope, no heel hook on the arete. After i reached some holds up high, i did a HIGH right foot step on the football. Then i rocked the body weight up and stepped the left foot on the bulge. From there you can easily reach a good jug to asstist in the mantle. Jan 16, 2012

Strong work Ely, did you use a left heel hook high up on a small dish on the left side of the arete? just curious. Sounds like Remo has sent direct. Jan 13, 2012

Yesterday Skyler and myself worked the left corner direct and both of us sent. We didn't use any of the holds to the right beyond the baseball hold on the face. Just curious to what the beta for the original corner problem is. The direct was definitely harder, probably V5. Do we have a FA on our hands??? Probably not, but lets hear some input. Jan 11, 2012

hmm my understanding was that you finish with the maneater topout after the football baseball holds. Does it go harder than V4 with the direct topout then, because it seemed pretty tough and super heady with the dropoff below when you get up there. Also Ringer broke off a pretty key sidepull going for the topout and almost died, dick. Jan 11, 2012

J Hann, I go straight up the corner. I also slap a good hold up and right above the Man-eater to help pull the feet up for the finish. Nov 15, 2011

Does the finish of this problem stick to the corner, or does go to the right and end on the man eater direct finish? Nov 1, 2011
