Description

This problem is a great one.

Start sitting just beneath the right facing corner with a very high right foot and a couple decent hand holds. Cam your knee in and get a great knee bar that you'll use through the next 2 moves, make a cool move to a hold out left then work that knee bar and grab the strangely oriented pinch up high on the bulge with your right hand. Grab sloped holds above, look around for feet then finish up the easy slab.

Downclimb the slab for the dismount onto your pad.

Location

Just to the left of DopemanV8) and a V13 that had a hold break during the 2nd ascent.
This problem faces the pond and is on the pond side of the area, there are no major boulders between this one and the pond.

That's crazy because I did it without the kneebar and thought it was v4ish! Jul 7, 2016

I was climbing this last fall when Mike Foley showed up. He sent it without the kneebar and called it a 7 like that! Apr 18, 2015
This problem is a serious contender for my favorite V3 in the park. It's just SO FUN. I climb in almost every time I'm in round pond and it's always a blast. Aug 19, 2014

Another sweet problem...
Ladd, I'd love to know more about the hold breakage on that Ill Saint thing to the right. Looks heinous. I didn't know a hold broke. Has it been repeated?? I just assumed DG was able to levitate up this thing somehow but I never really saw any holds at all! Dec 2, 2007
