Description:

Start with pockets and traverse right onto the beak hold and then to a big jug and top out. There are variations on how to do this problem. If everything is on, then the problem is 5.10. If the lip holds are off then the problem is reach dependant and is either dynamic 5.11- or maybe, barely, just barely, if short, then V3.

4 out of 5 stars Short guys finish last

being shorter makes the last move into a awkward dyno, cool problem though the beginning's a bit technical and the end is powerful.

5 out of 5 stars V3-, definitely height dependent

Highly recommend trying to do this problem without much (if any) beta, as it's very fun to figure out. People under 5'9" should be either very flexible or reasonably strong. People 6' and over will probably find this problem to be V2-ish. No pad necessary.
