Description

The crux is in the middle third of the wall. A short person's third move or a tall person's second. It's a tight crimp while doing a drop knee and smearing the other foot. Pros-working on bouldering skills while away from home. Cons-it is in a war zone, although a very mild one.

Location

Al Asad Air Base, Iraq. To find it go to a recruiting center and join the military. They will give you directions and a plane ticket there. Or if you're in the neighborhood just stop by the Four Aces Oasis at the DUSTOFF building. $7 steaks, dart, and poker tournaments every sunday.

Protection

For protection there is just an old matress. And reflective PT belts must be worn at all times.

Just out of curiosity, why is this a grade V. Sep 22, 2011

Grade V for technical climbing. And the V rating for rating a boulder problem. The wall has also been extended four feet to reach the roof of the building now. Oct 13, 2011

Lol, the Grade of a rock climb refers to length. Grade V is a climb that normally requires at least one overnight on the cliff either due to pure length or time taken because of lengthy aid pitches. Not to be confused with the V boulder ratings. You can probably edit the route description and take away the Grade V (that could confuse some people). The rating V2-V3 is all that is necessary.
