Description

Start on a couple of sloping holds and make a move to a two finger pocket, get your feet up and get ready for the hardest part, cut your right foot, campus up to a bad sloper and stick it (HARD!), then match on the left side of the dip get your left foot up and make the super hard/crux mantle.

Location

Left side of boulder, it is the one with lots O' chalk.

Protection

Pads and spotter, the fall from this one sends you rolling down a hill if you don't have a great spotter. Watch your ankles landing on your pad, there is a ledgey rock hiding in there.

Just like everything else at Priest Draw, this feels hard when you're working it out, and seems to drop two grades when you finally send it. It felt like a V8 while I was projecting it, but more like a V6 when I sent it. I'll split the difference and call it V7 for me. V6 might be a bit of a sandbag, V8 is way too generous. Sep 15, 2014

Must be using hard beta then. I'll repeat.....30 ascents with no rest....v5 or 6 at the hardest. The sit start bumps it up to about a 6 or 7. Dec 12, 2010

While I agree that Wifebeater is no V5, depending upon how one does the problem the ratings can be anywhere from a V6-V8+. May 15, 2009

Wiring something into submission doesn't mean it's any easier grade-wise. Wifebeater is not a V5. May 1, 2009

F.A. was by Jimmy Symans. V8 was the original rating with hard beta. Better beta downrates to V5. How else could the Wifebeater game be won with 30 back to back ascents with no rest. Ryan Taylor holds that record. Apr 30, 2009
