In my opinion as good as any V3 you'll find anywhere and one of my all time favorite problems. Move through the large hueco in the middle of the face, make a long move to the cryptic sloper at the lip and try to figure out how to top out. Crux is the move after you hit the lip (kind of tall but the landing is good).

I've always felt the Classic is a bit sandbagged but that's the way castle rock is sometimes. There's a low start that goes at V4 as well.


As you walk down the trail past the right side of Indian rock, this is the obvious line characterized by a large chalked up hueco in the middle. Pretty much directly under Donkey Dong.


Pad or two
