Description

Start in the obvious hueco, move up to a good edge and top out on cool slopers. It's just a couple of moves, but this is a super fun problem.

According to the description over at rc.com, the good edge is chipped, and it certainly makes the problem a lot easier. I've heard of people doing the original problem and not using the edge, and apparently it goes at V6.

Definitely V6 without the chipped hold. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. A slightly harder variation starts on the "hueco" and a delicate crimp, then busts up and right to a shallow pocket. Similar top-out. Jan 16, 2011

I really enjoyed this climb...although finding out that some idiot chipped a hold because they couldn't climb it really irritates me! Jul 12, 2010

It's a bit sad to learn that it was chipped, but it is an excellent problem. It would be extremely more difficult without the good edge. Nov 23, 2009

Originally it was a good crimp and V4. That broke and it was a small pinch, V6. Then someone chipped the pocket-edge thing. Jun 18, 2009
