A short but fun climb. In the middle of the South face. Sit start on a crimpy sidepull and an undercling pocket. Go straight up the crimps. You can either make a somewhat awkward top out straight over the lip or make a semi-dynamic move to a jug out right and top out. If you are taller this problem may feel easier as you can get a good heel toe cam in the start hold that you can keep until the lip encounter. If you are shorter you will have to crank on the good incut crimps. Bob Broilo's guide h...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico

How can something be graded "V4-V7?" That seems like an awfully wide range....just sayin.

i assume you are referring to Eric Scully - V4 (V4-V7)? i think that the wide grade range arises due to the fact that this problem is somewhat height dependent. If you are tall enough you can get a great heel toe cam in the start hold and keep it till you reach the lip. If you're shorter you really have to crank on the incut flake crimps. still, i agree it is a wide grade range...

If you read the intro to the guide it explains the shorthand used in the name block for the problem. (V4-V7) is the reported range of grades, while V4 is the consensus. That information is included for historical reasons, it's interesting to see how some problems are all reported the same grade and some vary wildly. One problem is V1 (V1-V9) but it's an inside joke :-).
