Starts matched down low on a right-leaning sloper, move left to good crimps on a rail and set up to throw for the lip above. Mantle over.

This line was F.A. by myself, as far as I know, back in 1999 or early 2000. The routes name was to be called "Child's Play." If you are tall it may only be V5, but for some it could be as hard as V7. It's a tall persons toss problem.

As far as I know I had the F.A. on this one some time ago... I only say this because of the massive cleaning effort put forth to ready the line for pleasant climbing. If some one claims an early ascent then I will reconsider my F.A. claim. No matter, this is a problem not to be missed if you love big throws. I love it!!!

Cool Luke, I just posted it cuz it didn't know what it was and we climbed it one day... Fun line tho, I thought it was harder than V5, like 6-7, but my buddy thought it was V5ish. But I guess if thievery is V6, then this is like V2... ha ha.

rating: V6-7 7A+ comparison I guess that would be true. The deal, I think, with this hog is that if you can't make the toss then your done. It's an all or nothing problem. I don't know... when I did the line I sent on like my 2nd or 3rd try. So, with that in mind it probably is V5-ish.

The truth is I suck at grading lines. I just climb them and guess. I'm guilty for grading my F.A.s soft and I am not sure why. I think it may be do to the fact that they often still have junk and pebbles or what ever coming off them. It's tough.. I'm not a number hugger but people often demand some indication as to the difficulty and am usual not the one to really ask.

All my other F.A.s that I have posted so far will most likely come down a full V-grade in the future. It's kinda funny.... I am a much better judge of difficulty on older more established lines. I wonder if that happens to others out in the climbing world?

I messed around with the beta a bit (I'm short), and I believe the dyno could be done with a heel hook out left on a sloper. Doesn't make it easier, just makes it less of a pain in the ass for us vertically challenged folks.
