Two moves.
Sit start, hands up, mantle the buldge and hand foot match to gain the top out.

A worthwhile one-move-wonder.


Mantle probelm just right of Hobbit Hole.


Pad only.

Gets its name from the obvious sharktooth hold above the jug. Sit start and use the tooth to mantel the big jug. For more fun, try downclimbing the problem via The Zoo Traverse.

Start with both hands matched on the jug, right foot on a good hold underneath. Pull up, heel hook with your left foot next to your hands, and cross left hand up to the shark tooth. Lean until you free up your right hand and grab a hold up and right of the tooth, then use it to rock over your foot. Done.

A significant portion of the tooth broke off, making it a slightly bigger move. If it was V1- before, it may be V1+ for some now.

I went with my right hand up to the tooth, and then bumped my left hand up to the left of the tooth. Not sure if this is the correct beta, but it worked for me.

I do this problem as a pure mantel. both hands on the jug, left heel hook. pull up, switch right fingers for palm, and go for the shelf with left hand. fun, feels a bit harder than v1 though.
