Are there any (non-aid) Commitment Grade V's in NE?

Pretty much just wondering if we have anything big enough?

In the Dacks maybe?

Most of the Cannon traverse is pretty easy..f/a took 6 hours.

I might give Lab Wall WITH the direct finish a V, especially for an onsite ascent.  very commiting..

The Big Plumb.. the r-l travers of cathedral is hard..took us 17 hours..longer than half Dome NW in a  day.

I tried the big plum last year, it seems impossible a few pitches past the north end. We might have gotten lost but i think it is just hard.
