I'd call it a high ball. Maybe on the short side of high ball, but high ball for sure. I Chicken shitted out on the last flake before the crack at the top before the last move. If you're comfortable with the height and have some friends and pads to spot you, you have to try this problem out! May 29, 2017
Any problem where you could snap your ankles, even with pads!, is highball. You're like 15-20 on this one for the final mantel moves. Oct 3, 2016

It was also a V0 back then too Bruce...by today's standards, it's hard to classify this as a highball, IMO. Apr 21, 2016
It was considered highball when I first climbed it 30 years ago before crash pads. Now you've heard it twice. Apr 20, 2016

Highball...really??? This is the typical height of many quality boulder problems at the Bald. After bouldering there for over 15 years, you are the first person I have ever heard call this a highball. Apr 18, 2016
This problem is potentially higher than 15 feet... It's really awesome for the grade. This is exciting high ball bouldering for sure. Great moves inside the crescent, getting up to the top, then .... well I wouldn't know because I chickened out! Apr 18, 2016
