Description 

This is a nice compression problem, albeit reachy, for the first move. Sit start on the two vertical slots, make along dead-point to a right hand pinch/sloper, set your feet and throw a heel, fire left hand to the side-pull, set feet again, fire to a right hand pinch, readjust, bump left hand up, feet swing, set feet high, and fire for the top.

Location 

Located on the Joe 97 Boulder, this is just to the right of All American Grinder. Sit start on the two vertical slots.

Protection 

A pad or two.

You are welcome, Brad. I am back in Junction for a few months, from Alaska, so I will be adding more.

Most definitely height-dependent but harder than other V5/6s in the area, including both Vodka problems. This is probably V6-6+, given the other routes in the similar grade range.

Cool moves and holds, but very sandy. The sub par rock quality takes away from the climb as a whole.
