Going for the lip


Sit start on a large slopey ledge,with a heel hook out right, fire up with left hand to a horizontal slot, then with you right hand go to a little knob below the two finger pocket then bump up to the two finger pocket then adjust your feet and top out.


Just left of Whales Tail, on the west side of the Barn Door Boulder.

Does anyone else think this is stiff for the grade?

yes. my brother and i started from the right jug slopers and did the first move to the sloping rail, which was awesome. the rest of the route felt pretty crimpy...definitely hard for a 3. we thought the sit went at around v5, and maybe v4 from the sloping ledge. that being said, this thing is probably almost as hard as sign of the cross in hueco, so...

Then give it a grade so we can get a more accurate consensus grade. This has always felt hard for me and i did it again the other day and it still feels hard :)
