Comments: comparing this to any standard v5 in the country is pretty much a joke. at least a grade harder, almost certainly two.For continuity in this area in particular, it is harder than busted up, out of the comfort zone, ronald mc donald and me, etc....

but it's really really good! tread lightly on the final moves though and if there has been snow melt that jug probably has the structural integrity of a cardboard box

Comments: ben put this problem up at v7 or v8. some folks thought it was way softer, it feels harder than wills, chips, and planet for me, so v7 seems fair and holds in line with ben's suggestion. thanks for putting it up K. Forgot to add that the crux crimp does flex a bit and should stay solid but definitely collects moisture behind itself...if the ground is at all damp just past the drip line of the lip, please give it some time!

Comments: I broke this thing, my bad. I think it was in the winter of 2013. I was trying to do the last move somewhat static and back splatted when I blew the hold off the wall. I am a pretty small dude so it was definitely a time bomb either way. glad to see it forced a way cooler move.

Comments: I truly believe this is one of the best climbs of any grade in the country. Way harder than it looks and amazing in how it comes together. I think 3 is fair and still plenty sandbagged to keep with the general trend of the area.

Comments: I preferred the sit start to this one, adds a really cool accuracy move getting out to the seam (felt like the hardest move on the climb to me)

Comments: This was how I started funky butt love originally thinking it was the most logical line. A great way to add to the challenge if you're looking for a slightly tougher one.

Comments: yeah seemed bunchy and height dependent for me, 6 from the sit for my height, seems kinda arbitrary to stand start it, I wouldn't see a logical place to do so

Comments: Not v5, this is harder than wills, chips, planet. felt about the same as heatwole or blue lambo to me, maybe even a bit harder. the right hand crimp apparently has broken and there also used to be a very good left hand to get you a bit closer to the long rail feature. It is absolutely amazing though, can't believe it isn't done more often, especially considering how close to the road it is.

Comments: I totally agree with steve. Sharp, awkward crux, split up by many no hands rests.

There is a very definitive crux. There are some other tricky moves, but I literally felt as if this climbs grade boiled down to whether or not you could pull the crux move(s).

I kinda felt like this one was a big joke too. "Tell them its the most classic, they'll all come to this one crag with just a handful of routes..."

Comments: this problem is incredible! great crimps and the landing is not bad. for a moment there I wished the crimps on this wall were up on the sport routes up the hill...

the moves after the big move are not so bad. I cleaned some more holds (and feet) out left and the line still finishes direct, there is just no scary committing move to the top anymore. all static.

I definitely disagree with this problem being sketchy or having a "bad landing". after falling on the crux move a couple times with very... more >>

Comments: Hey Mo,

Yeah, The Hop (V7) as it is called is also an excellent line. There is another line on this boulder that I think is rarely done that also has some fantastic moves. It starts down and t the left of the standing start for the classic one. Start sitting in two horizontal jug shelves and continue straight up from there doing a few tough crimp moves. I remember there being some huge feet and very small crimps. Traverse the seam right for a few feet and finish on the classic one. When I was t... more >>

Comments: Savage and fantastic indeed. Definitely contains some of the smallest holds ive grabbed at the top of a climb this grade. One of my favorite climbs anywhere.
