Felt pretty mellow for a V5, but I'm rather tall and there were some long reaches. I'd guesstimate that for folks with less than a 5'10" reach this would be a bit harder.

Its the traversing first move that seems the hardest for short people. I have seen some videos of people neglecting the first move, but that is what makes this problem a V5 in my opinion.

Interesting. I've done this problem a few times but it never occurred to me to start on waist high holds as specified in the new guidebook. The beta in the older guide (where the v5 rating came from, ironically) was simply "the problem in the middle of the face."

It’s interesting to see how different folks interpret the same piece of rock.

From what I understand there is a downed tree that has fallen from the other side of this boulder. It is making topping out this problem impossible or very difficult. I only saw a photo. Anyone been up to Cracker Boy lately?
