Description

Sit start just left of the The Block Problem (V9). Using a jug with your right hand and a sloper and a thumb catch with you left. Make a long move to a good hold straight up. Match then move way out right to a rail then top out. I found the key to this problem is having your feet in the right place think heels and back steps.

The route felt soft but it is listed in the guide book as V6 so I posted it as the book has it listed.

I was able to repeat this fairly quickly today. Post break the grade is certainly harder, but I would be hesitant to call it v6, but time will tell based on what others experience. The first couple moves are more engaging and this has created a higher quality boulder problem. The beta I used could be only for tall people, with that said, I will adjust the grade to v5-6 and then we can see what people think of it post break.

Also, Austin in your video I believe the climber started one move into the climb. Right hand on the now sloping crimp (where the jug used to be) and left on a nothing little bump to the left. I will get a close up of the starting holds next time I am there for clarification. Oct 23, 2017

Fun Movement. Took 4 attempts to top out. I would range in the v-4/5 range. Great problem and top out but found it difficult to come down.. Using the tree could be a bit dangerous, get a good spotter Jul 6, 2016
