Description [Edit]

Just on the other side of the stone wall as you enter the Pound, there are some jugs to your right, sit start and move up the slightly overhanging face on jugs, when get to the lip where there is a hidden jug just over the lip. So stand on the stone wall before you try it and locate this gem of a hold. Once in this hold move your feet up and reach to the obvious slopey slot, once in this slot move feet up again, then move hands over the top on more slopey holds, with your right hand bump to a good hold about six inches back. At this point you want to have the weight of yourself on your left foot so you can put your right foot into the hidden hold just over the lip. Once in this hold with you right foot the problem is a walk up from there. This is hard because you have to feel the holds for your feet because you cannot see them.

I feel this is harder than (vo).

Also be sure to have a spotter because of the nature of this route if you cut off at the wrong point you will land on your back and it hurts trust me I have taken this fall. Also have the spotter watch you from hitting the wall to the right, I have seen two people sprain their ankles from awkwardly landing on the wall.

Location [Edit]

just on the other side of the stone wall as you enter the Pound

Protection [Edit]

Pad and spot so you don't hit the wall.

I by passed the slopers on the top out by going from the first set of slopers in the slot to the good hold, this is a really big move and a blind toss if you don't know where the hold is. Apr 25, 2009

For the feet use the big flat holds, when you are pulling the lip put your left foot as high as it can go under the lip and right foot in the jug just over the lip on the right. Does that help? Jun 9, 2010

Not that it matters all that much, but my understanding of this problem is that you are supposed to go directly up from the starting holds, essentially following the faint seam. (not to the good hold out right that is being described)

Probably around v0+-v1 this way. Oct 28, 2013
