Description 

This problem is located on a large boulder at the Southeast end of Rock Hudson. Climb a juggy crack on an overhanging arete until it dies out 15 ft. up. Lean out left, onto the overhanging face, to a large flake. Finishes with an easy mantel 25 ft. off the deck. One of JTree's finest problems.

Protection 

Chalkbag and shoes!

this is definatly an awsome problem just bring a spotter to keep you off the back breaker boulder at the base!

Felt close to a 5.11 free-solo for a moment there...

This problem has always been the industry standard for 5.10c, long before V ratings. V0+ max. V3?!?! That's some serious grade creep right there.

Yeah, 5.10c sounds right on. The big reach crux on this is definitely no harder than the big reach crux on Bearded Cabbage (10c).

I have to share credit with John Bachar on this one. We were still in High School I think and saw the line of holds one day and climbed up and down till it felt solid and just went for it. Probably around 1973. Sort of the birth of high balling out at Josh, and the rest is history . . .

V3 in the modern context I think, especially considering the landing. A classic must do highball.

Russ, I think you mean B0 (as in old John Gill grade) and not V0.

Anyways, this is a great line. Mandatory highball for any visiting boulderer.

How high is the crux?
