Description

The best line on the block. Squat start with both hands on a good jug on the right side. Pick some feet out right and make a large move to the clam shell crimp. Heel hook by your hand and bump your right hand up a series of slopers until you are in a good position to float your feet to the left. Once settled make long move to the left arete and squeeze up to the top.

Location

If looking at block problem's start holds, look to the right about two feet to a large block sidepull that is the start hold. Follow the arete up.

Sweet Matt. That's awesome. I'd be happy to get some video of you on this and some of the other stuff you've put up recently like 'Garden...' and the problems up by Monsters. We just need to work out a time to meet if you're interested.

Thanks again. Aug 1, 2014

Matt--

It would be helpful if an admin allowed you to rewrite the description or if you posted a new description in the comments, to clarify the starting holds and the line, given that the beta described above is apparently not accurate anymore. Just a thought. Jul 31, 2014

After sending today I believe that v6 is the appropriate grade. I used very different beta than in the video and I think that is the reason for the grade difference.

Could an admin change the grade of this route? V6 seems to be the consensus and the original grade given is misleading. Mar 26, 2013

I agree this is a very fun problem and I think it is easier than the original grade. Really fun route however you cut it though. Mar 11, 2013
