Definitely one of the best highballs in the area!

Start at the center of the back wall. Move up to the deep hueco and here is where the fun begins....make some really committing moves on TINY pockets. Crux feels like the scary move you have to make to the lip.

The climb is well worth it, once you get back on the ground!


Go past the pocketed wall with bulging lip to the back wall with the obvious deep hueco.


A few pads would make this climb go a bit smoother.

I broke the lip off little middle pocket a few days ago..I dont know if it made it easier or harder but it made it feel like v3. But that could just be me..Also this is not a highball, it is not PG13, 2pads are all you need to feel comfortable.

I think this is quite hard for V5 unless you are good with very small 2 finger pockets. Definitely harder than Mr. Witty (V6)... Doesn't look like the pocket broke and it doesn't feel any easier than when I tried it in late 2007.

Also a fall from the end, ie the crux, could be quite bad if you fall out from the wall and miss your pads...

Super classic. Feels about as hard as solarium. Def easier and less scary than the V3 to the right of Water Saps...

A bit harder than Solarium maybe because it feels more committing...But easier than Mr Witty for sure(Mr Witty is a soft V6)I would call it V4+.
Two words...KNEE BAR.
