Description

Starts in the cave to the right of the V1 slab. Starts left hand on the sloper shelf in the center of the wall and right on a wide pinch near the right arete in the back of the cave. Traverse left to the arete. Continue up the arete and top out.

Monolith area, same corridor as Venus Rising/Bark Biter. On the same boulder as, "Boulder right of bark biter"

Protection

Pad, and someone to make sure you don't dry fire into the wall behind you

I'm not the admin on this problem but after seeing the comments above again the description is misleading. Starts left hand on the sloper shelf in the center of the wall and right on a wide pinch near the right arete in the back of the cave. Nov 15, 2015

We were calling this the pee cave project.. Lot's of peeing going on back there Apr 28, 2012
this climb looks cool, but it reeks like fresh piss every time. ill get on it if i run out of problems at the lake. until then.... Apr 27, 2012
After finally watching a video of Peter it seems I started one move in. As a note someone should change the description because starting on the sloper shelf matched as written on mountain project is obviously not the correct start? It seems left hand on sloper shelf feature and right hand down low on side pull type thing if my memory serves me right is the correct start? Idk how hard it is to write an accurate description of starting holds someone fill me in so I can fire this rig before I move to la! Thanks Mar 30, 2012

When Peter and Ian started it, they both started basically as far back into the cave as possible with their butt on the ground, so I would think a lower start is unlikely...

Nice work otherwise though! Mar 30, 2012
Remo, toe and heel hook out right face the opposite way on the starting holds! I can post the video later tonight if your interested? Feel free to make fun of how I fell off jugs after walking the crux I deserve it...an early nomination for punt of the season might be required! Ps sweaty bomb comment haha!! Mar 29, 2012

Greg, I'm very curious to know what your beta was. I thought the move out to the crimp(1st pic of Peter) was really hard, and the only move that shut me down. Mar 29, 2012
With new found beta I wouldn't hesitate to call this 7? Fell off the flipping slab 2 times and never managed a send so maybe it is harder i rarely pump out on slab jugs lol! Great movement one of my new favs on the east bluff props on the vision! Possible lower sit start? Mar 29, 2012
