This is the first problem you'll see when hiking to the Aircraft Carrier. It is on a large boulder right below the final hill to the main spot.

I am not sure about FAs or actual names on these. This is very straightforward with a couple long pulls on jugs.


A couple pads.

I was always told this was V5? It's definitely harder than V3.

Dunno, I think V3 is accurate - if Star Crossed Lovers is the basis for V5 at that area, this one felt a few grades down. There is a variation moving left that is probably V5, and a low sit-start in the small overhanging panel that leads out on crimps that might be V7-8 as well.
