This problem has seen a range of grades attached to it... V7 on the main page of this area, v8 in the old guide, and v6 in the new one. Even saw a video of a taller guy on it calling it v4. Somewhat dependent on body type, I think v6 is fair for Josh. Nov 26, 2012

Anyone know anything about the history of this line/boulder? are the nicole brothers involved in any way?

looked up the first ascensionist and found this short interview: climbing.com/climber/eric-z…

sounds like a very interesting fellow and a great artist as well. context is everything and my adoration for this climb just went up a couple notches. Jan 29, 2015

In around the year 1998, the Fred Nicole told me about this line. He was unsure if he did the FA, and he suggested v8 for grade. I had not heard of the line before that. Many years later Eric Zscheschie claimed the FA on it, said he did that and Kingpin during the same timeframe, which I believe was in the mid 1980's. Feb 9, 2015

I onsighted this problem years ago and thought it was around V4/V5 (JT ratings, not the gym fluff rating). I'm 5' 10". Jan 22, 2016
