Stand start with a pair of incut crimps about four feet off the deck. From there, work up the slab through the thin hands and feet and top it out.


This is on the South face of Coy Rock.


Pad, the landing is outstanding though.


I did this problem again today. I was looking at Magic Tricks, but it was a snowy topout, and it was definitely just as hard as this. A bit more 'dynamic" for Magic Tricks compared to this is balance based.

V1+ is a stiff rating. I could see for some how it would be V1+, but for others, this could be a very hard problem. Feb 11, 2018

I hear ya, Samuel. I'm all ears when it comes to input on grading as it's never made much sense to me. I wouldn't be surprised if some of those edges have chipped off from traffic since I graded it, as well. Nine Mile isn't the busiest place, but small changes can have big impacts on difficulty.

I like how you grade, Nick. 100%, when I see a problem you've rated, it's one we usually show up for. Veiled Citizen, a V4 you have is like a V1 for me.. but Hobo was like V5. Always subjective to the climber/style. You have great ratings and great problems on good rock. Can't ever thank you enough for all the work you've put in. Feb 18, 2018
