  • Description 

    The crux is probably the beginning, getting up to the bomb underclings. Once you're there, just pull over the edge. It is a good problem.


    This boulder is right on the road, so it is basically a landmark. The downclimb is probably harder than the problem, maybe V3+ hahah.


    A pad will do and a spotter helps, it is a little high.

    Is this the undercling problem, or is it more to the right on the smaller undercling feature at about 8 feet? Doing this one as shown in the pictures felt more V1 or V2 than V3. I'm trying to figure out where Donna goes, as that description is misleading as well and uses this problem as a reference.

    The pictures posted for this problem look like the standard route, which tops out high and uses the good undercling about 3/4 of the way up. It's a V1, I think. The undercling problem referenced in guidebooks is to the right and starts on two opposing sidepulls then uses the undercling about 8 feet up as referenced in the previous post (V3).

    I agree with the above comments on the pictures being incorrect. DSeltzer gives gives a great description of the correct start. This felt easier than the V1 to its left. Maybe "Standard V1" has lost a hold? "Milton V4" to its right felt way harder than this one to me.
