A nice V2 boulder problem but no VS route.

Just a one move wonder...mind you, that one move feels slighty precarious! Recommended.

V2? one move wonder??

Beta alert!!!

5a right heel hook lip on right of arete and pull up via slopers to good holds on left. Swing off right foot and place high left foot on break and stretch up via optional slopers to a high good hold. A very good V0 boulder problem.

agree with steve C, a good boulder problem, V2 would be fair as I found it quite hard and I can normally do V4 quite quickly

A nice route. Gaining the beak feels dramatic and a little bold. The rest of the route is pleasent and allows you to feel good about what you've jsut done. About right at VS 5b.

OK lets sort this out . Whoever said V0 is a zero.This is 5c and there is agood chance you would hurt your back if you came off. VS is a path. This is at least E1

I found that campussing the first couple of moves worked well though once established on the nose it's all over. Good clean brutal fun.

V2 boulder problem no way it can be VS, Diff climbing above the roof. And E1?? no way! Agree you could hurt yourself if you fell though.

Why not VS 5b? This describes the route in trad terms ie boulder problem start easier above. E1 obviously wouldn't. V2 if you like but VS5b just as valid.
