I name this here problem, Pittsburgh Nelly...a Welsh whore that could do things with her one good arm that would make you forget about that thing on her neck!

But no really, this problem is pretty frickin' sweet. Another mantle crux. The moves in the roof are so bomber!!!


Same start as 'Classic Western' but move left onto a big juggy shelf. Move up and left from there. As of now, I chalked "PN" on the jug shelf and an arrow to show the direction of the route. Once I get pics up it'll be easier to find.


2-3 pads since you're upside down the whole climb.

Is this the line that has the thin-bottem bomber jug before the mantle finish? If it is i felt it definetly went a little harder than Classic western, but not too much harder; maybe v4/5-. I did this when i was there this summer and it looked like there was already some chalk so it might have been done prior. On a side note, if you ever want a long pumpy problem, start on the lip as far left as possible and then work the thing all the way right either ending between the two roofs (~v2) or do both and really get a long pump in (~v3 due to length)

No, the only jug was over the roof and the beginning of the route. But you might be thinking of another problem, cuz I had to scrub a couple holds.
