Photo of recent hold break


The jug rail has fallen! Without the rail 2/3 of the way through the problem, the problem is a good bit harder. Smaller holds and more difficult movement will take you through to the finish. The loss of the rail significantly altered the problem and has left it more consistent in difficulty.

Can we get a consensus on the grade?

I'm not sure that the break increases the grade by much, just slightly harder. I do think it makes it more enjoyable though haha. Classic!

Climbed this with Karrington and also felt it was V2+ if I recall correctly at how it felt before the break.

Never climbed it pre break but climbed it last week. Felt like V2, don't think it needs a +. Movement was consistent and fun!

I think it's a bit height dependent, now. The rail falling off made the reach a bit longer than before. My girlfriend can't really hit the pocket at its peak now, where before she'd use the rail. She's 5'2" to 5'3".

I definitely notice the increase in difficulty. I agree to V2+ is accurate.

Not really harder, still v2 in my book.
