Description Suggest change

Stripes is a surprisingly fun one mover V9. Start wide on opposing holds, put both of your feet on, and fire up to the sharp pad-and-a-half jug. Top out on the low angle but funky finish.

It does have a sloping landing, so when you come down, they slide a bit (if you already have pads for Veritas, just load like four under this problem, and they won't slip). There are two obvious places to start. I started with my right hand on the low slopey pinch. Emerson's guidebook suggests starting on the bigger, more positive hold above. Either way, it's a big move up to the jug crimp. Your left hand starts on the positive edge out left, and make sure to establish on the wall before taking off for full difficulty. When I start on the wall, I'm so close I can't see the hold above.

Location Suggest change

Just uphill from Veritas on the boulder, this is the furthest right hand line before the boulder gets low and low angle.

Protection Suggest change

There is low chance of injury here. 2 pads covers the landing. If you have 4 pads, then placing all of them under this climb keeps them from sliding when you land.
