Climb the roof left of the leaning tree, then traverse left on the lip to a slopey mantle top out. The crux is deffinetely the intense sloper top out.


Crash pad


It is located on one of the two large boulder's in the Orb area with the leaning tree behind it. If you are facing the Orb problem (V8), it is located on the boulder behind you. It is located to the left of the leaning tree and starts on some jugs at the bottom of the roof.

This problem was listed as a V4 in the guide I was using. A long sequence of great moves on positive, sculpted holds leads to a tricky, slopey mantel. Oct 25, 2009

man that was definitely a V5 topout! The rest is pretty casual Nov 17, 2009

Yeah, that topout was full on. The temperature was 30 degrees Fahrenheit and I completed the problem first try, so I think you might be right about the grade. I remember being 99% sure I was going to blow the mantel. Jan 28, 2011

I've even heard my stingier south eastern buddies call this V3. Good old southeastern sandbaggery. Mar 30, 2013
V3 is a pretty harsh analysis of a problem that requires a massive heel hook while matching onto on a not very friendly sloper to top out. The rest of it is a V3. Jan 26, 2014
This is an amazing, high quality problem, world class. It's all or nothing at the top out, get that heal up! Apr 20, 2017
