This is given v4 in the guidebook, but it is a cakewalk compared to Vintage, Overlooked, and even v2 my A**. Stand start at the base of the enormous juggy flake system. Make your way up huge jugs to a big, mossy sloper. Get a high foot and stand up onto the slab above. A fun problem worth doing.


About five feet left of Rio's Problem you will spot the huge juggy flake.


A few pads if you want to be safe, but keep in mind they will get wet because the landing is essentially the river.

Supposed to be a sit start. I think that would explain the large difference in difficulty. The whole crux was getting off the ground and into the crack.

Ohh that could be it. If you start down low on the face, I could see the increase in difficulty.
