Comments: Also, the left arÍte in the photo... is it a V6 to the top out? I was able to get to the second vertical section and bailed due to height... never really tried for it.

Comments: This is so sick... I've just been reading up on the area and learned about the access issues. Do you want me to take this photo down?

Comments: The beginning is by far the crux...maybe V3 range.

Comments: Evidently this problem is much easier if you have the reach to throw for a big hold straight above the start... probably in the V1 range.

Comments: Originally I thought that this was going to be a really technical climb, using the features. As I found out, it's best just to throw for the jug. SO GOOD!!!!!!!!
