Description

On the backside of the Thriller boulder there are three problems that climb out a steep bulge feature. The V4 is the rightmost problem of the three and begins with a SDS on a low rail. Climb straight up and over. Excellent rock quality and an interesting sequence make this lowball totally worthwhile.

The new Joe's Valley guidebook has names for all three of these problems but also renames the boulder entirely along with its namesake Thriller problem. This had been known as Thriller V4 - Anyone know the real deal?

Protection

Crashpad and spotter if you're sketchy on mantles.

This is a great little problem, and safe to climb with no spotter. If you are shorter than 5'8" you may need to hop off your feet to hit the lip, it certainly makes that move more fun. Dec 1, 2014

There were quite a few V5 votes before MP merged duplicates together. Listed as V5 in both guides I believe. Mar 21, 2016

This rock climb is v5, especially if you can't reach the holds at the lip without jumping. If you're really tall and can keep your foot on it is probably v4. Oct 1, 2018
