2 out of 5 stars Way Easier BITD

This was much easier back in the day before the holds broke...

The V6 is properly called Bates Eliminate. The Bates Problem uses the arete to the left and works its way up and right, and goes at about V1 these days (it used to be a 5.9/V0-).

3 out of 5 stars V6, one-move wonder

Kind of a one-off problem though pretty fun the first time you try it. No pad necessary.

1 out of 5 stars right?

up left is V6, up right is V7.

Either way, three stars in the guide? hardly.
