Setting up for the crux move to the arete


Grab the quartz holds above your head, hit the hold up and right pick some feet and throw. Classic problem, gets way easier the taller you are (felt V2 for me at 6ft, but guidebook gives it V4)

This is a great problem that makes you look like a stud when you grab the jug on the lip and swing out.


Start left of Whale's Tail approximately 15 feet at two quartz holds a little higher than your head.


Pad, and a decent spotter for the swinging fall if you blow the dyno

with some weird feet and a drop knee i found this can actually be done as a really long static move...

I do this static as well. For taller folks it should go with no swing.

This should be changed to V2 or v3. This would be the stand start to the V8 sit start called Ginseng for Genius V8, which start below on a crimp and sloper crimp.

If someone could change this it would be great!
