Technical crimps and polished foot holds are the name of the game for the start. After a couple of great moves, larger holds are reached, from which the top is easily gained.

i'm fairly certain that this is in fact the hardest "v2" on the planet. i believe it took me and my friend, both confident v8 climbers, close to 15 tries each to send it.

Agreed. Hardest V2 ever.

It was my hardest send at the buttermilks on my first visit. Beautiful problem and nothing worth doing should be easy. Get on it!

Got shut down on this a couple days ago - it will go down next time I visit. What a beautiful line indeed!

i'm a V5 climber and didn't think it was that hard. i think taller climbers have a bit easier time with this problem i skipped a couple holds and nailed it on my 4th try.

I agree that the problem is significantly easier with "tall person beta"

Finger cracks with horrible glassy feet. I got a few moves in but then deem its the hardest V2 ever.
