It is in the shade, but the left sidepull sure feels slick as you pull hard to reach the huge jug on the lip with your right.

There is a positive crimp at the bottom of the sidepull that a lot of people use.

Yes the crimp at the bottom of the sidepull and small edges for the feet make it easier to gain the crimp below the top.

Is this problem named after Molly the person? Or Molly the Substance? :)

I believe it is named after the famous British climber and raconteur Craig Smiths' lovely wife.

Hi,

Russ is correct. I did the first ascent of this and it's named after my wife.....

Super high quality climbing. Don't be spooked by the rock at the base - you won't hit it. And the jug is HUGE.

I always thought this problem was way hard for V3. ;)
