Description

Start as for Old Gregg, but traverse left along the seam instead of heading up. After arriving at a nice letterbox style hold, make a big move up and behind your head to the crimps on the upper lip. Make a few moves up and left. Mantel the first tier of the roof and try desperately to find the jug on the second tier to top it out.

There is no particular crux; almost every move is physically difficult, requiring strong core tension and precise movements. The holds are all pretty good though.

Keeps breaking, keeps getting better. The main foothold for the transfer from the inside to the lip is gone. There are a variety of ways to solve this now, but all seem harder than the previous beta. The rock that's left is solid though, so this one is really cleaning up and should prove to be a lasting classic. Probably in the 7ish range now. May 30, 2015

Me and Thomas sent this today. The crux now feels like the move going out to the lip, but wasn't too bad. May have bumped it up a grade, not quite sure. The foot we used today was flexing a bit and might brake, but it looks like there should still be some good feet there regardless.

Anyways, this is a super fun problem. The sequence is awesome, and that mantel is classic. Feb 14, 2013

As of yesterday a pretty important foothold has broken. The foot was commonly used while transitioning from the letter box to the crimp on the lip. The problem definitely still goes, but is perhaps a touch harder. Feb 25, 2012
