Description 

Sit start just left of the The Block Problem (V9). Using a jug with your right hand and a sloper and a thumb catch with you left. Make a long move to a good hold straight up. Match then move way out right to a rail then top out. I found the key to this problem is having your feet in the right place think heels and back steps.

The route felt soft but it is listed in the guide book as V6 so I posted it as the book has it listed.

Definitely a bit soft, but fun nonetheless. Good movement.

Fun Movement. Took 4 attempts to top out. I would range in the v-4/5 range. Great problem and top out but found it difficult to come down.. Using the tree could be a bit dangerous, get a good spotter

The starting jug came off pretty easily this weekend...

First Move is legit now. Felt solid V6.
