Description 

This is a classic climb done by Henry Barber when sticky rubber and crash pads did not exist. It was given a wide range 5.12 grade.

Start on crimps at chest height. Make a couple hard deadpoints up and right along a seam to a jug. Then make a couple big moves on big holds to gain the slab topout.

Location 

This is on the left side of the Pusherman's Wall where it's steep.

Protection 

Couple pads/spotter.

I'd like to propose an updated grade of V4-/V4 for this boulder problem. It truly seems something has broken on this climb and opened easier beta/large holds. How does anyone else feel about this?

^What hold(s) have broken/have a picture?

I'm in the process of looking for old pictures to compare with what is available now. Unfortunately all I've found is quite grainy. There's a large, light brown spot in and around the crack in the middle/traverse that appears (to me) that opened another key crimp to use rather than stay/match in the crack itself which certainly seemed more strenuous.

Will post pictures since this great climb needs some pictures anyways.

I could just be an incorrect and naive sandbagger in which case I'll remove my comment about the condition/grade, but I promise this is done with the best intentions to keep any changes to this backyard spot up to date and relevant.
