Comments: I've tried this boulder for a long time now. After doing every other V9 in this area multiple times, I honestly don't believe this boulder is V9. Felt like V10 to me. This could be due to my height/reach. Anyway, I finally did it today with some alternative beta using a toe hook instead of the heel hook which gave me just enough reach to get to the crack. I also used a terrible left hand sloper instead of the big pinch to make this sequence work. Super fun climb, IMO. Glad to finally put it away... more >>

Comments: Took this down today (V9 variation). Felt so good. The actual V10 only uses the bad holds on the arete. Not many people have actually done it that way.

Comments: This makes a lot of sense now. I did this boulder for the first time yesterday, and the last crimp felt real bad to me. My buddy who has done it in the past mentioned that crimps up top were good. I thought I was going crazy, lol. I think it feels solid for V6, IMO. The feet are still pretty good which makes dealing with the small final crimp reasonable.

Comments: First move off the crimps was the crux for me since my feet cut. Thought it was hard for V5. Still managed to flash it though. Super fun climb.

Comments: I thought this was a great problem. It has a variety of holds and movements and is easy to pad. If you are in the area you should get on this one for sure.

Comments: Tried this again today and still agree with Peter. This is sandbag at V9. Besides the crimps being terrible, the problem is quite awkward. I would say it's V10. I'm hoping to finish it off soon.

Comments: Love this problem. It felt hard for me, and it's very much my style. The hardest part was the dyno. I could never do it from the start. Anyway, I finally got lucky and sent it. Just take a deep breath before the dyno, and it will go.

Comments: I started on the slopey rail with a heel hook to the left. Moved right hand up to a crimp and walked my feet back under me. Made a left hand move to a slopey edge/pinch (crux). Then got right heel hook and came in left hand to an okay edge compression. Finally bumped left hand to a good hold on The Kind and continued up the line.

Comments: Super fun boulder problem. Not really V9 but I would say its solid at V8 IMO. Either way you should do it!

Comments: Did the problem today with the break finishing on Skunk Rub. It makes it much easier and more fun. The right hand hold is a lot bigger which makes the first move easier. I think with the break it makes the problem fall in the V6 range.
