Comments: I believe this problem has broken, specifically the starting flake. Sit start on left pinch and right crimp are the only obvious starting holds now and does not feel v6. Can anyone confirm this?

Comments: I'd like to propose an updated grade of V4-/V4 for this boulder problem. It truly seems something has broken on this climb and opened easier beta/large holds. How does anyone else feel about this?

Comments: Would totally recommend wearing a helmet in this area. Or always when standing under a route. In 2 days I saw 2 separate rock fall incidents last weekene, 1 of which would have absolutely killed a woman and an man with his dog if not for missing by a few feet. All melon sized rock.

Comments: Great rock with some really crimpy boulder problems. Bring a few pads and some great spots. Eliminate galore, can make some really hard Vgrades with sit starts.

Comments: This place is pretty cool - if still a bit brittle...

Also this area DOES NOT get sun year round. On Nov 30th it was in the shade all day.

Comments: Ah yep that was certainly the route we really enjoyed that one!

And yes Matt! Thanks for the warm welcome!! We had a blast but we're still getting a feel for the outdoors. Been tackling every 5.8 and 9 we see and we're gonna ramp it up to 10a/b the weekend after turkey day! Slow and steady since we still quite green :)

Comments: Not sure if an answer to this is listed elsewhere but there is a 3 bolt to anchor route to the left of Anchovy Caper, anyone know the rating for this/what this is called?
