Description

Begin on obvious crimps then pull to a bad right hand crimp then to jugs up and left. Benningfield lists this problem as V2, but consensus seems to be closer to V4. It is worthwhile regardless of the rating.

Location

It is just right of the downclimb on the south face of the Gill Boulder.

Protection

Did it today as a warm-up. I agree with Phil's rating. V2 feels about right. There are several V3s in the canyon that are harder than it. No way it's V4. Apr 5, 2013

The rating may depend on how you finish it. I've never thought it was quite kosher to grab the "side" hold that is about straight left from the high right crimp, at least not for full credit. Instead, go up (and still somewhat left), and then sticking that move is the crux. Doing as I describe could be V2 I suppose, in the same way that Crystal Lift is V2. Jun 14, 2014
