Excellent. Begin at a right hand sidepull and a flat hueco. Climb past thin dishes and slopers to big holds above. Significantly harder in the sun.


A few yards right of the roof at the left end of the Killer Wall, climbing a wide pale streak.


One pad should do it.

This problem is great, but I wish it had 8 more ft. of sustained climbing. Really fun movement that ends a little too quickly.

The holds get so glassy in the sun. this problem would be best to do in the shade or in cooler temps but it is a fun challenge to do in hot temps and in the sun.

The original V5 start of this problem climbs up through the miserable crimps to the left of the start described above. Starting with the sidepull lowers the difficulty to V4, but brings the quality up a notch or two.

I've never tried the original start that Colin Cox mentioned, but I'll agree that starting on the sloping sidepull doesn't feel like V5.
