Description

Lightning Mcqueen is trickier than it looks, and slopers are the name of the game here.

This is below a seam that can often be dirty or wet during a period of frequent rains. Have a toothbrush handy just in case the holds are a little dirty.

On the middle of the downhill-most face you will find a low obvious jug to sit start matched on.

pick up to get a good right heel hook and climb through the slopers above using a right hand crimp side pull along the way. This will lead you into more slopers at the seam overhead. Climb up and right at the corner with another good crimp rail on the right wall of the corner to finish out.

Aaron, I think you can bump this to V4, looks like pretty good consensus at that grade. Jan 21, 2014

Be mindful of the crimp rail on the topout, it's holding but is detached on three sides. Dec 14, 2013
