I don't think it's possible to top rope this problem. There's definitely no bolts, at least not anymore. Also, I think it would be harder than 5.9+ as a top rope problem. I realize the Craig Fry bouldering guide says 5.9+ but in the V system that would be a few ratings lower than V0. And the Craig Fry guide also shows "Hinge" going well right of "Hinge Direct," which goes at V4 or something (because of the start, mostly). There may have been better holds there at one time. The problem that everyone calls "Hinge" now (including the topo picture here) goes up the same line as what everyone calls "Hinge Direct," after the first couple moves. I feel like it goes at a solid V0. Everyone I've talked to at the beach tells me it's a V0. In conclusion, I am claiming I sent a V0, and I would encourage you to do the same if you top out this very enjoyable problem. Feb 9, 2014
