Start all the way left on the quartz underclings eliminating the lower block and work up the left pinches with some techy foot work. Finish Leap Frog. This makes the entrance moves much harder. fun!


same start as leap frog. start on lowest undercling in roof to make for even more good times .

Zach I believe that is the proper v9 variaton. Matts variation skips the hardest part of the climb by not climbing thru through the crack and uses a lot of the traverse Aug 18, 2013

There are a couple variations now, but the direct start without the ledge underneath was generally considered to be V9ish. Matt's variation(s) start more to the left. May 9, 2013

i've been trying what i thought was leap frog variation. Basically i'd start at the bottom with the block off and go straight into leap frog. Does anyone know if that's a route? It felt pretty hard. May 9, 2013
