Access Issue: May 19, 2022 - Cibola National Forest Enters Stage 3 (Full Closure) Status Details


Although this problem lacks height (and thus commitment), I think it deserves classic status. Start with both hands matched on the low crimp that looks like a crooked smile. Work your way into the start crimps for the standard (squat) start version, and continue up to the mantle finish. Lots of moves for such a short problem, with interesting body position and balance issues to contend with.
This is a tough problem to rate - it's tricky to read, but once you've got it dialed it gets substantially easier. I've heard it called V7 by strong climbers, looks like some people think it's V5. Whatever. Wish I didn't have to put a grade up, but the site won't let me post the problem without one.


See photos and area description.


Pad is nice to have while working the problem, but this is a low problem with a flat landing.
