Description

Sit start down in the jugs and find a sequence through sharp holds that won't rip your skin to shreds. Move up and left into the giant hueco and pull through a powerful move to get established on small crimps on the face. The crux comes as you try in vain to make it to the appealing-looking holds above.

Location

Just across from A Steve Edwards' project, you can't miss it.

Protection

Pad. More than one helps.

Ah, that makes sense, Pablo and I ended up using the tiny white right crimp, then throwing left hand up to the dish. Good fun! May 2, 2017

Harder or easier than Shaken Like a Torando?

Classic bags-o-sand

But yeah, this thing was my nemesis for sooo long. I ended up getting the kneebar, the good left crimp, standing up tall and finding a little pinch up and right, which felt like a much more stable position to stab for the end holds. Much better than that "crimp" on the face which I'm pretty sure disappeared. Apr 30, 2017

That's funny, I agree: this is an insanely hard V6. The top holds seem to have gotten worse over the last few years. Apr 18, 2010
