Potentially the most photographed and most manageable v2/v3 at the Original Garden The Good V3 is Classic.

The base of this boulder and problem is well trampled and starts from a stand start on a positive jug and pocket. Few new handholds are presented as you work your feet higher and higher on this dead vert problem. Just when you've gotten your feet as high as you can from the Jug hold a high reach up and right bears a pocketish hold. Desperate foot moves sets up a deadpoint for a flat slopey pocket up and left marks the routes crux. Once the pocket is nailed, locking off and mantling out the problem marks its completion.

Prior to the second dynamic move into the flat slopey pocket it is possible to traverse right to a jug facing the wrong way, and a less than stellar V1 variation finish. This variant will not tackle the crux of The Good V3, but is important to know if walking off is more ideal than a fall from the boulders midpoint.


From the Boys in the Woods Boulder a switchbacking uphill scramble ducking under a large tree to start puts you at The Good V3. From The Good V3 Azian and Francois are just uphill. From the base of The Good V3 it is easy to peek into Jerrods V10 cave, at the lowest point of a large highball slab boulder to your right (facing The Good V3 with your back to the road).
