Description

Start with hands matched on a sloper. Most throw a heel up before traversing left, aiming for the jug. Finish up as for the Pedestal. The first few moves are awesome but quite tough, just another great moderate at the sit down area.

See Pic.

Might be V5, might be V6. Either way, it feels a lot harder than Pedestal so whatever you think that is, add a half/full grade.

Location

back side of the pedestal boulder, right side of the road.

V6- seems about right to me. Fun little problem.
Pedestal felt quite a bit easier to me. Jul 2, 2010

I completely struggle with the Pedestal yet this fell quickly. Enjoyed the start on this one more. Jun 29, 2012
Feels V5 even to me- Executioner is much harder. Jun 5, 2014

Both Executioner and Hats Off have lots of options to beta down each move since they are heavily featured rock climbs. Executioner has a pucker factor, although the falls are often not as bad as one might think. Like most grades, add or subtract a V grade from the popular consensus and you probably have the right grade for you. Jun 6, 2014
