Comments: I did this a few years ago, starting matched on the left hand side pull. The hardest move was the first, right hand to the lip. Still, I don't think it was any harder than V5. Kind of fun.

Comments: I have to wonder if Isaac got these two routes mixed up. I thought Pine was at least one grade harder than Spruce. Great problems though!

Comments: The spotter should make sure to have a very secure stance (build up the landing if necessary). On one attempt, I came off at mid height, hit the the edge of the landing, pitched over backwards into the talus below, taking out my spotter with me.

Comments: Top out is desperate! Anyone have any good beta on how to finish this thing? (After getting the two opposing slopers over the lip).

Comments: I think that the V5 rating is for the sit start.

Comments: I believe that John Sherman did the FA, back in the 80's (at least that's what I've heard; he's also told me this). He called it The Red Monster.

Comments: Yeah, the difficulty of this problem really depends on how you start it. If you do a normal stand start with left hand(finger) in the first mono, it is probably V5/6. It is quite a bit harder if you start with both hands in the underclings, put you feet on and then reach for the first mono. About V7 in my opinion.

Comments: Hmm..., actually looks dicier to me than hands on the rail.

Comments: This problem is described differently in different sources. The description here is as in the Caldiero guide. Personally, I think that described this way, the route is about V3. Good jugs all the way across. In the Bigwood, Grijalva, Pegg guide, Stumblebum Traverse starts further left, at the base of Joe Cool. This adds several difficult moves, and is quite a bit harder; probably V5.

Comments: This is actually the same problem as the one listed in this section as "Thriller V4".
