BETA PHOTO: l side of project
Crux is last couple holds to get over the bulge.
When looking at the Project Boulder (first boulder you hit when taking the shortcut trail from the parking lot), look for a vertical crevasse with lots of chalk on the left hand side that is in the shape of a huge "Y". According to the guidebook, which has seemed to at least be the standard everyone knows about, start here in a Sit Down Start (SDS), go straight up vertical crevasse, traverse left and then over bulge on crimpy jugs.
Apparently "Crawl Daddy" from the guide book pgs 4-5 is a SDS V5 but "Crawl Daddy" from the video I have seen is not a SDS and rated V4. I would not say the SDS makes it a V5 as the SDS on this one is not that difficult. The video I have seen of this climb is rated different from what's in the guide. I will update info if someone will let me know specifics. Would love some input on this one.
Use a pad as the landing is flat but not all that solid in places

What is the V5-6 problem that starts just right of this and goes straight up? It has the right side pull crimp up high just below the top.

Are you perhaps referring to Deadlift? (Btw, there is a decent extended start to Crawl Daddy; SDS off of the right most flake.)

Not Deadlift. The one I'm talking about is between deadlift and crawl daddy and is harder than both. It is very fun though!

rating: V3 PG13
I don't see this problem being rated above a V3, including the sit start on flake. Super fun!
