Description

Sit start the same as Route 5, the V8. Make the first few moves, but instead of making the big move out right continue left along the crack and move through some small crimps and a horrible sidepull from the angle you're at. Finish up and top out - following the crack system.

It is a good line and pretty obvious once you look at it. I think it's definitely harder then the V8...let me know though, haters :)

Checked this boulder out on a quick stop in while driving through the area on Hwy 50. I only had the old Benningfield guide and didn't know where anything started, but did what I could while the family stretched their legs....

Struggled to grind out a send what I guess is a variation to 'red':

Sit start to the left with a well-chalked pockety-pinch LH and very thin sidepull crimp RH. Power up to the bulbous sloper with crimpy sweet spots. Use tension and heel hooks to work left to top out the interrupted seam system that 'red' uses.

My grade radar is very off, but it seemed to be V8ish, possibly harder if long driving hours make one stronger, possibly easier if I was just feeling my age.

In any event, it was an obvious chalked start with good moves.

Well, it's obvious the line has been climbed before - why there's no FA info, not like it matters... it's an easier line anyways. Oct 12, 2012

Not to be a "hater", but this problem has been done in the past. It's good that you put it in the little topo for others to see and try. Feb 5, 2012
