A deceptively difficult V4. Technical and delicate face climbing on insecure holds.


Lower Forestlands.

Deceptively difficult is right! I still haven't finished this problem which is on my bucketlist. It's basically amazing until you get to the last move (of course). It's a razor sharp, crimpy side pull up the face, terrible feet, and a BIG last move to finish. The hardest part is probably getting your feet up higher after you grab the top to pull yourself up.

I love the challenge this route presents. It is as much about figuring out your own beta as it is about the physical effort. There are many foot and hand hold options - most of them some variant of bad. The trick is figuring out which ones work for your own style. I found that the type of shoes I wore on this route made a significant difference. Sep 27, 2017
