This is the leftmost line at Pirates Cove.

Start on good low crimp rail and move up right to an ok right handed slop/crimp. Next pull onto the painful left handed, teeth-like, sidepull crimp. As fast as you can, bust up and right to the finishing jug on "2nd Mate", and top out.


It is located in The Pirates Cove just behind (North) of Gilligan's Island.


Pads and spot.

Might be the best climb on the wall. Classic. Also I think you can start on this one and traverse right into the next line over for an interesting variation. May 19, 2010

In my opinion, this problem compares to the standard V3 (+) on the Redwall at Flagstaff. First two moves are SWEET. Aug 8, 2010

Isn't most of Flagstaff considered SANDBAGGED? Sep 9, 2010

Haha definitely, I'm pretty sure the "+" was added to the grade by people who felt the same way. Sep 10, 2010
Does this start on crimps or a jug? I think the description may be a little off. I started on a nice incut jug, made one short move to a lh jug, then a big lockoff to a RH edge before falling into the sidepull (which isn't as bad as the description suggests) and reaching to the finish jug for 2nd mate.... The line I did couldn't have been harder than a soft V4. Jun 4, 2011

I did the climb the exact same way as George, seemed the most natural. Had no beta, just saw the wall, was my first time in the area.

Agree on the rating, definitely not harder than V4. Nov 21, 2012
