Start standing with your right hand on a small sidepull crimp and left on the arete. Bump up the arete, hit a higher sidepull, and work out the slopey top. Heel hooks are your friend.


The arete left of The Extra Ion and right of the face with Pop on Top on it.


One pad and a spot.

After looking at the descriptions a bit more closely, isn't this problem essentially the same as the 'v8 variation' being described for Red Fish ?

I have to say this feels harder than v6 to me, though perhaps I'm misreading the beta.

Entirely possible, Christian. A friend did it and thought it was new and/or unnamed. When I did it, it came together pretty easily despite the terrible, terrible holds for your right hand. Oh, and I definitely didn't do any dynoing as in the description for the V8 variation.

Well, I like the name. And I think it is worth establishing it as it's own independent line, since it shares very little in common with 'Red Fish'. I pointed that out more for clarity and grade comparison.

Admittedly I only gave it a few tired goes at the end of my session the other day and (after all of this rain lately) the conditions left a lot to be desired. So, I'll have to give it some effort again when fresh and see what I think then. Either way, it's a cool line. Short but powerful.
