Description 

Although listed as V2 in the guidebook, this tricky face climb doesn't feel anything like V2 even on the best of days. Stand start with a pair of crimps at about the 4' level and choose how you will proceed. Either power into the undercling with small feet and then toss for the good crimp, or skip the undercling with a toe hook and grab a high left edge before reaching up to the crimp. Stick the lip and mantle over. It's fun either way.

Location 

From the Rainforest Boulder (Valley Boulder) follow the wash towards the Method Boulder for about 100 feet and you'll see this slightly overhanging face. Walk off the back.

Due it's location, this problem is somewhat overlooked. However, it climbs really well and is definitely worth a visit.

I did a low start to this problem yesterday (start left hand on the ledge below the right hand start for the stand, and right hand on a low edge). Interesting foot beta was required to get off the ground, followed by what felt like a violent move to get into the start of Pinkerton. From the low start it felt like V6/7.

Has anyone else tried this?
