DescriptionV4 might be the best grade to climb at Lincoln Woods and this one is a contender for the top. Start at the base of the crack in the center of the cave following the crack up and right. Top out when the jugs end when the crack turns the arete.
The crux comes in the first few moves and with the option of using feet on the opposing wall to make the climb easier (probably v3+/v4-). This option may seem contrived but the cruxes climb differently with one being more subtle and core dependent while the other forces longer moves between the better holds.
