The Boys of Summer

Description 

Sit start in the alcove with your right hand on a good, low sidepull jug and your left hand on a faint patch of friction on the steep face and crank left to the arête. Climb the arête with left hand, and use small nubbins on the steep face for your right hand. Move up to some right hand crimps and top out.

Location 

This ascends the dead obvious, right-trending, laser cut arête that is about 200 feet away from the main collection of blocks.

Protection 

A pad.

Really nice problem. I think for larger folks, the reach to the crimps might be more of an option when your right foot is on the starting jug. We also seemed to be able to match on the starting jug and reach out to the arete with the left (instead of starting wth the left on the slopey face hold.) I'm thinking Old Timers rating of V6- is because he started with both feet on the left face? Anyway, great problem regardless! The only reason I don't give it 4 stars is an eliminate.

No problem, Tim.
I changed it to V4 based upon your new beta.
