Description:

Start left of the tree on left crimper and small box grip on right. Move up to small tooth, then left to sloper and match. Pop to left 2 digit hole, the left and up to top. I was there when the guys set this one back in 2002-ish and they were saying V9. It's harder than Sam and the Dialtones, so I'll go with the V9 rating. If you don't agree or know otherwise, lemme know!

2 out of 5 stars The Word (FA Sean Stiles)

"The Word" (stand start) is a V5. The sit start is a V7. Not even in the same universe as the real V9's at Chandler Park

4 out of 5 stars Nice tricky balancy problem

I did this one way back right after it was put up. I believe I got the 4th ascent after (I wanna say the dudes that climbed with Larry) put it up.
