Description

Do you like pulling on crimps? Then this climb is for you.

It's a classic Gunks boulder problem, and one of the better climbs in the grade at the Gunks. It's much harder than its neighbor (The Following, V5). This climb starts on the bottom left block at the base of the boulder, and climbs straight up along the left side, working a series of crimp rails to the top. The arete is off.

It's hard in the grade, but a great climb nonetheless. Similar to the following, there is a boulder that rises behind the climber about halfway through the climb so probably best to throw a pad on that to protect it. Also, dont dab.

Protection

Throw a pad into the pit, in case you fall on the opening. Drape another pad over the rock edge, so that if you fall you just slide into your pad in the pit. You'll want another pad + a good spotter to watch you on the top part.
