[Hide Comment] Flexing hold is still flexing. Make sure to stay low on it, don't bring your hips out and hopefully it'll stay much longer Sep 25, 2013

[Hide Comment] this is a great problem. it's hard, but fun. helps if you're tall. the last move is definitely tough cuz of the horrible crimpy sloper thing you have with your left hand. but a high right foot helps a lot. May 22, 2015

[Hide Comment] While warming up on the V1 crack, we saw some bigger guy from Long Beach try to climb it today and break the left-hand flake hold. He fell back unexpectedly but was fortunately ok. He cleaned it after and tried a few times to climb it post-break with no success. I climbed it right after they left. The new “thinner face” goes closer to a solid v3. The left hand is now a smaller but positive gaston. May 23, 2021
[Hide Comment] I can confirm the climb is a grade or so harder. Someone also ripped off the small right hand flake/gaston as well. I had to come up with new beta using a high undercling. Maybe V3/4?
The sit is now a bit harder as well with the new sequence. Dec 5, 2021
