Description

Although listed as V2 in the guidebook, this tricky face climb doesn't feel anything like V2 even on the best of days. Stand start with a pair of crimps at about the 4' level and choose how you will proceed. Either power into the undercling with small feet and then toss for the good crimp, or skip the undercling with a toe hook and grab a high left edge before reaching up to the crimp. Stick the lip and mantle over. It's fun either way.

Location

From the Rainforest Boulder (Valley Boulder) follow the wash towards the Method Boulder for about 100 feet and you'll see this slightly overhanging face. Walk off the back.

Felt like v6 when I punted the topout LOL, wasn't sure where the sit started, started really low sorta down and to the right on some awful crimps. May 25, 2017

Due it's location, this problem is somewhat overlooked. However, it climbs really well and is definitely worth a visit. Oct 15, 2012
