Blank face with sketchy low sloped foot holds. Run and jump to jugs and top out, or start on sharp, non-exsistent crimps to jugs then top out. walk down northeast part of boulder(easy). I personally didnt think this climb was v6, since once you get to the jugs its a jug haul, I would give it a stout v3 for the area. If throw up is v4, v5 SDS, this probably isnt v6. Dont let it fool you though, its quite the reach!


northwest face of boulder. Facing the flake boulder.
The start is below the jugs in the horizontal rail 7-8ft up.


pad, insanity, to run at a boulder and trust blankish feet to high jug jump.

I have done this problem static with no cheatstone (6'4") and feel V6 is an appropriate grade. Run and jump is V3 Dec 10, 2017

Agreed - v6 ONLY for doing the moves static. Skipping all of the crux moves with the silly jump sequence drops it wayyyy down. Apr 4, 2016

Adam's right about the grade. Originally called Dead Ringer (thou Scimitar sounds fine, since thats what it was renamed in the DK guide), it was done as a static problem w/ a small cheat stone. Mar 8, 2012

I think the V6 grade is for a static start. Most will need a folded pad or a cheat stone to reach the only decent crimps on the face. Mar 1, 2011

Its pretty freaky choosing either the slopey left or right foot... quick word of beta, get "on top" of the feet for a rather easy explosive jump. once you get it, its dialed! Nov 29, 2010
