Potato cam vid of FA by Erik Knall. He said felt V9, but possibly height-dependent (he's on the taller side). Nov 20, 2019

[Hide Comment] Nice one, Erik! Just repeated it today... IMO it felt maybe more like V11. Felt easy when I did it as well, but I think it's one of those subtle ones that just clicks. Very skin dependent! Also, I used a different method, I'll put a link to the video: Nov 29, 2019
[Hide Comment] Oh, I also unfortunately crumbled the right hand crimp as I was topping out. I don't think it really affects the climb though. Nov 29, 2019

[Hide Comment] Repeated this during quarantine. Felt like solid V10 to me. Unfortunately while trying to add a sit start, I broke the foot that the other 2 ascents have used. The boulder still goes without the foot though! Jun 9, 2020
