One of the best problems around Vail.


Start seated and just left of the northern prow of the Aircraft Carrier. A few juggy pulls will get you to the crux where good core tension should keep you on from a crimp to a sloper then a pinch and finally a jug. You get bonus points if you cut your feet while grabbing the jug. A couple more easy moves and the mantel, and this one's in the bag.


A pad, you might want two. It might be nice for the sit start.

Quite possibly the best problem of the grade in all of Colorado.

People might want to get this one done in a hurry. Buddy and myself have been climbing all the routes in the area the last few days and that problem (done a few months ago) is looking in really bad shape, we didn't pull on it because it looks like the three first moves are about to pull off. The first siting jug you grab then heal hook flexes a LOT, a lot more than it did a few months ago for certain. Could soon be down graded to the V5 stand start only!

Just to the left of this problem is a shortie V7/8 that starts impossibly low and does some sweet moves up to a head height jug in a crack. It's called Juliet.

Not so sure how chossy this is. There are a few loose holds at the start, but they appear to be bomber.

The route to the left is called Romeo. Juliet is the line to the right of SCL.

Good luck climbing it like this dude in the video^^^. He's gotta be like 6'6". Starting holds are fine. Start low with a match for full value, and can we call this V6 instead of V6-?
