This is somewhat of an eliminate problem but still a very good line.

The pic of this problem has a box around the two crimps that you eliminate using.

Start the same as for an Unknown V5 (the only other line established) - in a sidepull pocket and on a small slope. Go up to a big hueco with your right hand, left hand still in the sidepull, and then crossover bump to a full pad crimp. Lock off hard, use the intermediate pinch or go right to the small crimp with your left hand (stay tight, contain the swing). Up again to a weird divot, drop into a sidepull/undercling and go big up to the big pocket. Finish up same as the V5.


It is NW of the small parking area by ~130 yards.


A pad.

A little contrived. Not worth the effort, unless you have already done the main problem.
