Description:

Right of Nutcracker, follow a thin crack to two obvious flaring V grooves. Tricky, and deserving of the notorious Cathedral 5.9+ rating.

3 out of 5 stars Awkward!

It was fun, but I don't know if it's G. THe V's don't protect very well.

4 out of 5 stars Double Vee

Why do so many people top rope this very G rated route? An excellent single pitch with sustained difficulty and good stances between moves. Of interest: "Double V" was also an African American campaign in World War II to defeat Fascism abroad and racism in America.
