Description:

This is one of the most beautiful problems at the Gunks. Lots of chalk on this black boulder make this sit-start line easy to spot. With hands side-pulling, slap all the way up the (sort of) arete. Wonderful open-handed holds.

4 out of 5 stars soft?

Maybe a little soft, I thought the hardest part was the end, which the guidebook calls v3.

4 out of 5 stars nice

took a bunch of tries to figure out what needed to happen. not so bad once you know what you need to do. catching the smell of poo from the bathroom is a bummer...

3 out of 5 stars good

Good problem, definitely not my style, had to work for the tick. Hit it in the shade on a cool day, otherwise it's super greasy
