This is the slopey problem that is located at the bottom Northeast end of the Main Wall. It starts on a flake and goes out the slopey arete. You can either top out right or left. Both seem to be V6 but the left seems a tad bit harder.

Super fun route. Topping out right I'd say is probably a harder V5 IMO. If you go left, there is a crack forming around the horn, so be careful.

I love this problem. I liked to cut feet and get a little kip going to move up to the holds over top of the bulge.

Someone broke the top chicken-head. It is now a well-positioned crimp that you are throwing to. I think it is still V6 though.

Finally worked and got the left variation to this. With the new breakage (nice new sidepull), the movement left is fantastic.
