Yeah Vertigo is pretty obvious whenyou do Reppy Crack. Union Jack is between the two. Look for a nondescript slabby thing with a 5.5ish crack going through it. It then goes up into an left arching corner capped by a bulge. Above that look for a big bombay chimney above. I have been on pitch 1, 2, and 3. We bailed after that due to weather. I haven't Vertigo...yet.

I have done the first 3 pitches of Vertigo. It is a Stout 5.9 with a really tricky pendulum on pitch 2. We bailed pitch 3 smacked us around a bit.

I was up there this weekend and it was cold. I ended up only doing REppy's. I did see two that were on Vertigo, which surprised me. They were not moving at a blistering speed, so I was wondering if they ended up doing the whole thing.
