Only a little harder than the shield for me but much more fun. Dec 3, 2016

Maybe the jug breaking off is why they call it "Busted". May 31, 2014
I climbed this from matching on the flake on the lower right. In the book it says something about a flexing jug, though i have never seen one and assume it broke shortly after publication of the guidebook. Starting on the flake crimps with a right heel hook and a low left smear, i pulled on and reached up with my right hand to the first good, right side pull. This was definitely cruxy and desperate, and when paired with the upper crux, may be harder than V8. May 31, 2014
With good beta the first move went from crux to straightforward for me, I'm not certain the grade has changed much. Dec 23, 2013

Any comments on how this climbs now vs how it climbed before the starting hold breakages? The first move felt harder than the "crux" move above, and kind of thrutchy today. Maybe I'm missing something? Oct 6, 2013

That last little right-hand undercling is downright brutal. Super fun problem though! Oct 20, 2009
