Working on my nemesis during an evening session. ...


Sit start down in the jugs and find a sequence through sharp holds that won't rip your skin to shreds. Move up and left into the giant hueco and pull through a powerful move to get established on small crimps on the face. The crux comes as you try in vain to make it to the appealing-looking holds above.


Just across from A Steve Edwards' project, you can't miss it.


Pad. More than one helps.

Hardest V6 of my life. No joke. Awesome climb though.

That's funny, I agree: this is an insanely hard V6. The top holds seem to have gotten worse over the last few years.
