Description

Sit start in a left-trending seam about 6-7 feet left of the dead obvious, dog leg crack. Make a few moves up that seam before heading right and joining the dog leg crack. Climb up and top out. The stand start has been done by many people and is V5, but the first ascent of the stand is unknown.

A friend climbed this and said the high left hand jug (round shaped) flexed and made a slight cracking sound. He recommended we not climb it.

Edit: another person who has climbed here frequently said it has been flexing for years and that he wasn't that worried about it. Mar 31, 2018

One day it will break, even if we don't climb on it. A new, harder problem will be born. The same can be said for a number of routes out there.... Apr 2, 2018

That left hand jug was good enough to crank off of it yesterday for a send. Whoever wrote "loose hold" in chalk with an arrow pointing to the hold...really? I have felt it flex before, but she's holding steady. Apr 22, 2018

The hold finally broke today. Seems much harder now. The hold is now a larger slightly downward-facing sidepull. Dec 20, 2018
Just saw someone else reported it broken. I was out there today, and the hold is still there and can be glued on if folks want (I left it conspicuously at the base of the problem). The move is a little more of a reach, but I'd argue it is still V6 SDS and V5 stand compared to the V7s nearby. Dec 26, 2018

Don’t glue it back. It can be done without it. Thanks! Dec 26, 2018
I left it for you folks at SNECC to decide what to do. Honestly, I think it climbs better without--keeps it lively for an additional move. Dec 27, 2018
