Start on 1 of 2 big flakes at head height. Crux is the first move up to a smallish crimp. Stick this and screw up the courage for the long haul to the top. Reachy moves between small sidepulls and gastons leads you straight up and over the bulge (at about 30 feet). Scary!!


Just right of Lidijia's Mouth. I think the starting jug on the left is broken. Right jug is huge and well chalked up. Easy to spot.


Pads, but a fall from the top will still leave you a cripple.
Very much still a project for me (though I've actually gotten past the crux once and had a foot slip) and very much NOT a V5 ... I agree with the NWNINJA, it's in the V7+ realm now. New guide book seems to agree, giving it, at least, a V7. Nov 29, 2017

Too bad that it has broken but it felt like a 5 to me! Get that heel up and pull. Beautiful line. Jan 13, 2016

The move following the dyno is now a hard lock-off/desperate move to a bad/high crimp. I've done the awesome v5 version of this problem 4 or 5 times and this is in a much different league. After doing the new line last week I'd say this is certainly in the v7+ realm. Still a fantastic line but the dyno is no longer the crux, be ready to pull hard with a high heel to gain the next high hold. Jan 3, 2016
Got Drone Militia 3rd try but could not do this (yet :) ). Definitely not a V5 anymore (Jan 2015). Jan 24, 2015
The crux on this is definitely moving up from the crimp above the second jug now. WAY harder than it used to be. Nov 21, 2014

Due to holds breaking off, this is probably a V7 now, maybe even a V8.

Left start is gone, now dyno only from the right side. Good crimp up left of the jug/rail has been ripped off, revealing a very small edge and making the long move up from there much more difficult (though not too high off the ground and easily protected). Luckily the top out is still solid. Mar 31, 2014

The good crimp above the jug has been ripped off. It's a sad day, indeed. Mar 28, 2014
Left start has to be pretty hard now, sideways dyno maybe? Anyway the regular dyno is still money. Eases off right in time, I thought two pads was sufficient. Feb 21, 2013
