Pimpers Paradise

Description 

On the backside of the Thriller boulder there are three problems that climb out a steep bulge feature. The V4 is the rightmost problem of the three and begins with a SDS on a low rail. Climb straight up and over. Excellent rock quality and an interesting sequence make this lowball totally worthwhile.

The new Joe's Valley guidebook has names for all three of these problems but also renames the boulder entirely along with its namesake Thriller problem. This had been known as Thriller V4 - Anyone know the real deal?

Protection 

Crashpad and spotter if you're sketchy on mantles.

This is a great little problem, and safe to climb with no spotter. If you are shorter than 5'8" you may need to hop off your feet to hit the lip, it certainly makes that move more fun.

There were quite a few V5 votes, but we had to combine 2 problems together. My opinion is this is V5.
