Start on the 2 slopers on the blunt arete. use either the low edge or higher left smear and throw for the sharp jug. top out on jugs


blunt arete between the 2 faces just left of Pete's problem.

Classic one-move problem but it is a good one. I never pass up doing it whenever I am in the neighborhood. Jul 7, 2010

Soon it's fun to see how high up on the jug you can reach. once you shred your hand failing to stick it, time to quit. Apr 25, 2011

Nice to hear from you, Jake. Have you tried Reverse Pete's?

nope.. never appealed to me. i didn't even like Pete's but was too stubborn to stop trying. and even then used alternative hold beta. Dec 7, 2011

Am I the only one who finds this much harder than V2? Took me far more tries to get this one-move-wonder than it did to get Try Again. Could just be me... Mar 10, 2014

If you aren't very flexible (have trouble getting your left foot up to the foothold) then it will feel harder. Mar 11, 2014

I agree it's pretty stiff. A friend of mine who does v10 took two sessions to send this thing. I personally love it, the Dyno is much more dramatic for me than other people because I'm 4'9! Jul 16, 2016
There is a crimp on the sloper that is almost nonexistent, but it helped me with the dyno. Oct 15, 2016
