Sit start on the left facing flake. Climb straight up and top out slightly left.

The original left facing jug flake broke off. Some people have been starting out left which makes it a bit more direct.

[Hide Comment] great route! having the correct beta will definitely help on this one. Commit to that spikey crimp above the flake! Oct 20, 2014

[Hide Comment] I onsighted this problem before I had even climbed a V4 in Bishop. If you're tall (I'm 5'10" with a negative ape index) you can reach your way around the crux of this problem with a biggish move. Feb 15, 2015
[Hide Comment] V5? I guess... And I am south of 5'10
Seems soft. Kling and Smirk ("V2") is harder. Oct 18, 2015

[Hide Comment] It's soft, but a 5 I feel. It's not easier if you're taller and one of the crimps has broken more. I've done harder 4's and easier 6's, so somewhere around 5- seems right to me. You actually have to think about the movement and beta a bit even if the moves are not insanely hard. I've done physically harder, but more straightforward 2's and 3's, but it isn't physical difficulty that always makes a grade. Nov 12, 2018
