Definitely one of the best problems in Bishop if not anywhere.

Sit start on small crimps and climb up into the good flake undercling. Continue onto the lip, make a couple of moves left and right, figure out how to get your foot to face level, and then mantel (or throw) to the big smiley jug. Careful on the top-out.

This problem can be more difficult for those who are either really tall or really short. It's probably helpful to be average-height and flexible. There's also a variety of ways to do this problem.

Although Tony Lamiche gets credit for reclimbing the problem in it's current state after the hold above the lip broke, the original FA was by Michi Tresch probably back in 1999 or so. Michi's version was more along the lines of V8 and didn't see many repeats before the hold broke and the problem lay dormant until Lamiche did it. Jan 28, 2014

V8-? Any reason for knocking off more than three grades Andy? Apr 13, 2017

Recently broke the hold after the larger flake right before the lip.

There’s still a crimp jug but not longer the rest of the hold to toe hook off of for getting the foot over the lip if you used said beta.

Everything still goes but Andy’s beta (in video from 2014) will either no longer work with what’s left or be harder. Nov 17, 2018
