Comments: Why are there so many pg13 and R rated climbs out there? Or what makes so many of the routes pg13 or R rated? I usually imagine large run outs between protection with ground fall potential or hitting a ledge. Bad bolts or spicey gear?

Comments: This is my favorite boulder problem at the Sailing Hawks...no crazy trickery, just good, old fashion, hard pulling on tiny crimps on perfect sandstone. Around the corner from this problem is an overhanging boulder problem that leads to a slab. This might be the best V4 in the entire world. THE ENTIRE WORLD!!!!
