This surprisingly hard problem is just to the left of The Prow. It starts in an obvious groove and heads straight up. The top hosts some tiny little crimpers that seem to want to spit you off. It's a great problem to sandbag your friends on. David did this problem quickly and told me it was V4. The next day he showed it to me and we both proceeded to fall on it time and time again. After we both managed to get up the thing, the grade was raised to V6.

Apparently, the grade now has been raised to V7 or even V8! That makes a bit more sense if you read my description. V4, Dave?

This problem seemed close to impossible. I would love to go out there with someone who has some beta. Me and a much stronger guy than me tried this problem for a very long time and came up completely emptyhanded.

Ha. I warned everyone in my description! This thing is ridiculous! I have a sequence of shots somewhere showing a repeat ascent (the photo above is part of the sequence). If I can find them, I'll post them. I don't remember the exact sequence, other than desparately tic-tacking my way up on tiny crystals.

I also have a hard time on this one. One thing that sticks in my mind is pressing super hard up on a high right foot. It made my right toe feel like it was going to explode. Some people make it look easy though.

Thanks Greg. Will be out there again in May or June. Need to look at this one again now.

I recently sent this on my birthday,Coin gave me a gift of good new beta! I used a high right knee bar, squeezed my left hand out of the sidepull/gastone/knee bar. crimped left above, and bumped my knee bar up slightly and reached my right hand to a good crystal at lip. It went quick with this beta. Hope someone else tries. Thanks Coin!
