Description

Distinct crux about 3 moves in. Left hand undercling out wide, with core - strong smearing, or a high foot and perhaps some technical knee turning and flagging.

It should go solo, which will make it a V1-.

 My 150 lbs didn't blow any holds, but I'm not soloing conglomerate that has no history on here!

Location

Water side of the conglomerate boulder in the small parking lot with the park info sign.

Wait, 5.8- is now V1-? last I checked, V1- would be a 5.10b/c. If this is 5.8- that would be a Vb on the V scale (V0 is 5.10a) Apr 16, 2018

So offer your consensus. You definitely can't blame me for sandbagging. Someone's gonna get hurt on this and blame you, saying it's harder. For a strong climber, like us, yes, it's probably quite close to VB. I thought I was in the right in preparing weaker, timid, less experienced climbers by grading it high, but throwing the minus on to indicate that it could feel easier to particular individuals. You should know this, by the looks of your profile (elitist). Thanks for your input. Now go climb it, or stick your nose up at my silly little jungle gym scramble that I saw when i parked next to it, and don't. Its really not that serious brah! Apr 16, 2018
