Setting up for the crux pull to the lip


On the east side of the boulder is this short- but-sweet (and steep) problem. Really a one or two move wonder, it's primarily worth adding to your Rubidoux circuit because it's not a slab problem. Give your feet and ankles a break from those dime edges and smears and pretend, for a moment at least, that you are at Hueco.

Rated B1+ in the SoCal Bouldering Guide (Fry), which would be a bit harder than V4 - perhaps it's a hold specific problem or something?

Done the most obvious (and least contrived) way, it feels like about V4. For the super-human, maybe it's possible to resist the temptation to deadpoint to the lip out right and continue following the face up and left, although there don't seem to be any holds. Maybe something broke.

I went straight up the wall with static cranks on the small edges and it felt solid V5. Great problem, pity it is so short.

If v4 it is sandbagged for sure. I would say v5. Oh and the holds are sharp so bring fresh skin and go for the flash

Calling it V5... Those crimps are tiny and razor sharp.
