Description [Suggest Change]

Start standing with your right hand on a small sidepull crimp and left on the arete. Bump up the arete, hit a higher sidepull, and work out the slopey top. Heel hooks are your friend.

Location [Suggest Change]

The arete left of The Extra Ion and right of the face with Pop on Top on it.

Protection [Suggest Change]

One pad and a spot.

After looking at the descriptions a bit more closely, isn't this problem essentially the same as the 'v8 variation' being described for Red Fish ?

I have to say this feels harder than v6 to me, though perhaps I'm misreading the beta. Jun 16, 2013

Entirely possible, Christian. A friend did it and thought it was new and/or unnamed. When I did it, it came together pretty easily despite the terrible, terrible holds for your right hand. Oh, and I definitely didn't do any dynoing as in the description for the V8 variation. Jun 16, 2013

Well, I like the name. And I think it is worth establishing it as it's own independent line, since it shares very little in common with 'Red Fish'. I pointed that out more for clarity and grade comparison.

Admittedly I only gave it a few tired goes at the end of my session the other day and (after all of this rain lately) the conditions left a lot to be desired. So, I'll have to give it some effort again when fresh and see what I think then. Either way, it's a cool line. Short but powerful. Jun 16, 2013
