Description

One of the more challenging problems on Cutfinger, and another impressive effort by the likes of Gill, Chouinard, Kamps, etc. Especially considering their shoes and other gear.

Stand start the slight arete in the middle of the boulder, right hand on a flat gaston, left hand on a small sidepull crimp in a small crack/bulge. Stab up to another small crimp in a diagonal seam, then up to the top.

I think this route is significantly harder than V5. I felt like I couldn't pull on the starting holds, and I have seen a video of a guy that did a V10 on this boulder flailing on this problem. Aug 2, 2016
