Start on lowest right hand pinch and left hand crimp flake further out from the slapper. Drop knee, hit the "Swiss Cheese" pocket/hold and top out on jugs. If anyone has additional information, including the actual name, please let me know!


This is the center line, in between The Slapper and the Unknown Undercling, V4.

It's V3.

Happy to change the grade, but I definitely felt as if this thing felt harder than 3 for the Garden.

Back in the day (okay, only mid '90s) this was called a V2! I'd agree though, feels harder, even when given a 3.

Also, try Nose Lunge to get a sense of what was originally considered V4 at the Snakepits! That thing is every bit of V6 if you ask me.

There are many eliminates for these problems. I have been climbing on this since the early '90s, and just like the Black Hole in Morrison, there are many ways to contrive. Versions up to V8 from the same start pinches have been done.

An example of a standard V4 is as follows:

Start on both vertical pinches, bump left to smaller pinch sidepull, move right to a gaston, up and right, hit left hand in the cluster of pockets, fire up left to a crimp, right to jug and finish straight on edges or move right and finish into the prow.

Apparently people have called this problem three different names on MP.
