Watch out for that swing.


Start with hands on a large flat hold and feet hooked on either side. Follow the chalk out the overhang and top out.


It is on the large boulder left of Bullet Hole Rock.

Does anyone know is the mono on top of the boulder is natural or manufactured? It seemed kind of unnatural to me.

Surely this problem is way harder than the Money In My Purse route on Captain Aslab.

Yeah a v1 rating here is odd. Are we all sit starting far left, traversing right and out of the overhang to where the mono pocket is? The description is a bit weak. I have climbed similar problems with something more like a 3+ rating, some even said 5. I think the top out a few feet to the left of the mono hold is a v1 for sure, but the balance and barbarism the top out to the right (especially if you avoid the mono pocket, and manage not to swing into space) is certainly no v1. But ratings, they are just numbers mixed with opinions.

I think this is noticeably harder than Mil. Falcon at Dynamite, and I feel like it's the standard for V1s in the Valley. Also just an opinion, but....

I agree this is stiff for V1. The rating came from the old, crusty guys who taught me how to climb here long ago. Regardless of the grade, it's a pretty fun line.

Agreed Alex, this is one of my favorites over there!
