Just wanted to let people know that I cleaned a direct version of '3 Speed' (aka Medicine Man). I posted it up here as 'Up Into The Green Silence'. Check it out!

Also, when I did '3 Speed', I was able to statically reach for the left hand crimp by using a left heel hook. The heel hook isn't great, but it holds surprisingly well. As for the grade, v7/8 seems appropriate (compared to the other climbs at Rumney). Once you figure it out, it's pretty reasonable.

Here's the video (first problem shown):

Here's the real info -

3 Speed on Vinyl V7/8

Start on the shelf and move right through the crimps to get the sidepull jug - highstep the crimps and make a big move up and left to a crimp and then topout into the jungle.

The guidebook is just wrong. When V6 was suggested it was because he had a lot of reach. Feel like updating the description, Matt? Feb 2, 2011

That would make sense it seems a lot harder then V3/4.

Maybe it is a misprint in the kemple guide or there seems to be a possibility going left from the start it could be that and over time it has gotten mixed up. May 17, 2010

I remember working this years ago with Brett & Eman, but I don't think anything broke. They told me it was a V6 with a completely different name. May 17, 2010
