Pull through three drilled monos and huck for the top. Possibly the best chipped route in the world.


crashpad, positive thoughts.

The start of this route is the crux-- strange underclings and a miserable foot. Once on the monos, it's just a matter of tendons.

Yeah, the difficulty of this problem really depends on how you start it. If you do a normal stand start with left hand(finger) in the first mono, it is probably V5/6. It is quite a bit harder if you start with both hands in the underclings, put you feet on and then reach for the first mono. About V7 in my opinion.
