Germ Free Adolscence, V5 – Eldorado Canyon, CO

This is a classic problem that has 3 variations, a V5, V7 and V8. This boulder has not seen many female ascents, so a group of friends and I went out to see why that was. We decided to top-rope this thing first, as the crux is the top out. For me, using the toe-hook to match and then move to the lip helped keep my hips in tight to the rock. Although, using this beta, I had no choice but to cut feet at the lip, which was quite committing. I think more females can do this problem, especially once the beta is dailed. Take lots of pads and spotters! Thanks to Ivelin Penchev for the great footage! And thanks for the solid spotting everyone!!
