Ok. We gotta find some harder stuff here. I'm looking for V4+. I will be in Madison for the next 4 years, so it will be found.

Careful, many people have gotten tickets doing this. I CAN show you a V4+, but you gotta do it incognito.

I'm not suggesting you pull the trad climb of Van Vleck, but if you BUILDER in the bouldering sense and do it incognito like Rhoads said, you should be okay.

How does one builder incognito? Wear a Groucho mask? It seems like approach shoes would be a good idea for buildering. That way you can dip

A mask would work! The V4+ is the mosaic on the west side of Van Vleck. You will need a pad though as it is very high.
