Description

A very unique problem with impeccable rock. Mount the scoop and slab it out to the top. Climbs more like a sandstone problem, on slicker rock, of course. Classic.

Location

The obvious beautiful scoop in the Misery Cave.

Unless you have abnormally high foot-confidence, or use more than one pad to start off with, this feels like V6. It seems like the taller you are, the easier the "press" is and the fewer intermediate moves you have to do on those... "holds". It's amazing this wall goes at a V6. Super fun. Nov 21, 2014

All. Time. Classic.

But.... one comment....

If you start from a pile of stacked pads, you kinda need to not count the send as the press really is part of the crux.

If you can climb V5, and you're at the Sads, there is absolutely no excuse for not trying this one. Aug 11, 2013
