Description:

Amazingly good problem that is probably actually V4. Start on the sloper above your head and climb up the sharp holds to a high finish.

4 out of 5 stars Debate on grade

Seems like some people think it's V3, other's V4. I think this comes down to whether your forte is strength or technique, or if you're balanced with both. If you're pretty strong this problem, which is essentially a few campus moves will seem like V3, if you're like me and tend to rely on footwork it feels much harder. Either way, I give it soft V4 grade.

4 out of 5 stars Stout but fun

Pretty Hueco typical. Good holds, but overhanging and lotís of body tension. Probably only feels like a V4 if you are into sequency and balancing, slab stuff. Good for short folks though!

4 out of 5 stars One Move Wonder

I exaggerate of course, but there's really one big move you have to master to send this problem. Kind of sharp and crimpy toward the top-out. Landing's slightly awkward, but it's still a classic problem you have to get on.
