Best problem of it's grade in the RRG. Great moves to a cool topout.

Did seem a tad harder than V3, I thought I was through with the business of it, then I went for the topout. Damn fun problem! I don't know about you Stewy but I was glad I had a pad with me.

no stars for this route? Deserves at least two if you're going to give table top two stars. That thing is a pile compared to dreams

The base is a rubble pile. You'll probably have trouble sitting down for awhile if you fall off it without a pad. I missed three pads and some piled up fleece jackets trying the top out and it didn't feel too good. The top out is definitely the crux. FA was on a 27 degree January day with snow falling.

Wow, fourteen years went somewhere! I saw this one day when Pistol developer Erik Farley gave me a tour of some unpublished routes to the left. He was stoked to show me the routes and I just wanted to fondle the series of slippers that would become this problem. Soon after I returned with my twin Highlanders on a cool late-fall day. I rearranged the talus landing area slightly, palmed the holds for awhile, and finally turned around to leave without putting my shoes on or laying out my crash pads. When I realized it I immediately sat down, put on my shoes and from a sit start on sighted my way to the lip, where I found myself confronted with a very blank and sloping top out. I went back two more times but with spotters, took and handful of scary falls from the lip, and finally one day all alone I unlocked what ended up being a fairly simple top out sequence for the FA. Dreams. Later that year I married the girl of my dreams and today is her birthday. Dreams really do come true.
