A lot easier the taller you are. Felt like V4+/5 to me, but could see why taller folk feel like it's a 3. Very beta intensive. Nov 15, 2015

There is no way that this thing is a V3. I have climbed many V3s all over and this is far harder than even Fabulous. It's at least as hard as Needle to the Vein. Apr 25, 2014

This may be another one of my problems... If my memory
serves me correctly. I think I was home visiting, bouldering
with friends, and that's how it got the name. Jan 10, 2013

This problem is easily 3 V grades beneath Shamoo. Nov 23, 2012

I'm of the opinion that Shamoo is V6 and this is easy V5. Between this site, popular opinion, and the new guide, it seems Gretna grades are suddenly all over the place. Dec 12, 2011

Shamoo's baby cousin. I'm sorry but if people give Shamoo a V5 grade, then this thing is mad easy. Nov 18, 2011
