Description

A solid, powerful problem with technical feet that would be classic if it didn't fly under the radar. Sit start the left side of the slightly bulging face at a jug in the crack with your ass on the low boulder behind you. Follow a seam to the right for a couple of moves, then using a right hand sidepull and a left hand crimp/sloper, dyno to a better hold up and right (crux). Match the hold, then top out straight up.

Location

This problem is on the Crack Boulder, visible from the trail, and around the corner to the left if you are looking at the Crack of Pain.

The footwork is really tricky on this thing. Really unique climb for Pway. I think this and Rubber Cement are my 2 favorite V8's at Blair. youtube.com/watch?v=tR_gVGz… Nov 27, 2016

An overlooked climb with really good movement and a definitive crux. Don't underestimate the moves post crux. They're not that hard, just kind of weirder/trickier than they appear. I punted off them twice and ended up having to come back another day to finish off the climb. Kind of sharp, but not too bad, especially when compared to other climbs on this boulder (Crack Of Pain!). :)

I thought this was harder than most of the other v8's in the area, as I found the crux to be very low percentage. May 4, 2015
