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: The start is directly below the really sharp crimper in the circle.

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!!!!!!!!

Comments: I agree. There's plenty to be found here if you don't mind breaking brush. I've discovered a good hand full of problems... actually, I'd be willing to bet Sean and George discovered this place long ago. They may have done all the bolting. Don't want to give last names just in case.
