Description

As described on flagstaffmountainbouldering.blogspot.com
"Climb straight up the face past the obvious horizontal crack with a good undercling."

This problem was the biggest learning curve I've ever encountered. I'm not sure who rated it V3, but I've seen people who power through V6s and 7s walk away defeated here. Don't be mislead by its low rating is all I have to offer.

Location

This is left of The Amphitheater proper, through the undercling. You can't miss it, it's right on the trail.

Protection

Pad/ spotter.

Perhaps I just have this very wired, but it seems relatively easy for V3 compared to this area (e.g. Red Wall). 4 stars may be high, but it's got diverse moves, direct line, high but not too high. It's good! Jun 1, 2012
