Comments: As of 4/15/15 the big jug flake at the lower left has broken off, making the problem significantly harder. It still goes, my guess is that it's v5ish now.

Comments: For the lighting we put in recessed 20w LED floods covered with lexan diffusers. They work well, it's bright enough for sure. As for the floor we have six mattresses and about 12 crash pads in there for a 24x24 area, it works well enough. I looked into pro flooring from asana etc and it was just way too expensive

Comments: It's a piece of wierd wood tiles that was glued to the floor there, that we just didnt bother to remove. This building used to be a music studio and concert hall, I think the wooden spot was sort of the stage.

Comments: Thank you! The hold density in there is now at approximately twice what you see here. I think there are about 60 taped problems now, it's really fun :)

Comments: Not at all. I have plenty of windows in my house, this is in an outbuilding that has been converted entirely into a gym. I don't go in there to enjoy the view, I go in there to train.

Comments: Morgan this is just a 30 second exposure, i want to say f2.8 and iso 32000, de-noised heavily in post. So no streaking even though i didn't have a motorized mount.

Comments: Feel this area should be moved to other than "high sierra", as the rest of the routes contained in the "high sierra" section are alpine routes, this is a cragging area.

Comments: Yes, the v2 starts standing with the right hand on the good incut at about head height on the arete, skipping the crux of the v4 which is moving from the sit to establish on the arete.

Comments: Someone thought this was the same grade as High Plains Drifter in Bishop, or the White Arete at Ibex? Not even in the same league. This one is v4 at most, please.
