Squat start in cave on right facing jug. Throw right hand to flat edge, left to incut edge. Right hand slaps along lip, left to crimp. Grab jugs over lip to a easy mantle


The first boulder you encounter on trail 200' up road on right from the mine cart boulder.

Toe hook rather than a heel worked better for me.

Best V5 in Joe's Valley? I think yes. The heel hook start is the beta for ladies, makes the first move static and wonderful instead of a giant throw.

Girl beta, Kill by numbers V5

I did this solo in March, had no idea what the beta was. I ended up doing it my first go with the "girl beta" posted above. It seemed more natural to me that way when I spotted it out. Easily the best 5 I've ever done anywhere, hands down.

Left start hold is now broken. Twice broken, I believe. Still absolutely a go, but whoever got all huffy-puffy about things breaking should consider not spewing their rant in chalk all over the rock. Ugly begets ugly, y'all.
