5 out of 5 stars climb gets in your head

This is a great climb. I personally thought the rating was a little off.....(I don't feel V1's should involve legit two finger holds and it's a way different climb for tall vs short) that being said.....as your staring at it the rock it has an arching crack that you start (perfect LH undercling if u look) then go straight up the middle ....you will see an obvious line of pockets, grab the bottom with right hand (2 finger), lean out (if your short like me way out with right foot stupid high)grab 3 finger pocket (LH) set your feet then throw for the crack on the roof (RH)....I reset my feet then throw left over the top to a deep 3 finger pocket...then right heel over and mantle/heal pull up.....this climb is all about trusting your ability and your spotter ....the angle is funny and makes the the fall very sketchy so bring at least 2 pads.... Tall guys will have way better feet in the start....if your short (like me) the key is getting the right foot as high up on the right side of the crack as possible and hanging full skeleton to reach the hold... I grabbed the crack LF(toe hook) as i went for the 3 finger then released right as I got full stretch and it lands perfect...good luck b safe
