Description

After easy moves to a big jug in a left leaning diagonal crack, this problem involves an exciting and committing diagonal dyno to an exceptionally large, black xenolith. The landing drops away at a sloping angle into a pile of big cobbles, but can be made fairly safe with a couple of pads.

Location

Center of the southeast face.

Protection

pads and spotter.

Short person beta: Right hand up to the first crimp, left heel hook (hand-foot match on jug), cross over left hand to the higher crimp. The more pads the better, the landing is horrible. Oct 21, 2013

I'm six feet and I used some of the short person beta Sys Ex mentioned. I had my right foot angled into the starting crack and my left foot flagged with my left hand crossed over on the high crimp. It's a committing move but situating myself this way distributed all the weight evenly and gave me good balance so I could throw for the jug with my right hand. Jan 20, 2015
Does anyone else think this feels kind of soft for J-tree V4? It's a cakewalk compared to pigpen Mar 11, 2016
