Comments: Thanks for the info, Ryan. Not sure what people expect ... when you pull on small crimps on Flagstaff Mountain after all that rain and snow, BAD things happen to classic problems.

Comments: Many years ago, I climbed into and did the same finish a couple times from the right ... let's just say, absent some serious precleaning and some dry-runs on toprope to be sure, I wouldn't do that sans rope again. That rock towards the top is terrible.

Comments: IIRC, the stand start is in the old Front Range Horan book. It felt V2/3 to me, it has always been unnamed, painful, and deemed B5.9 or some other nonsense in the Horan book. Anyway, I quickly lost interest in the obvious, sharp, crumbling low start. Maybe some aggressive cleaning has taken place. I find it likely that crumbling low quality rock will reclaim it eventually.

Comments: It never occurred to me or anyone else I have spent time at Cryptic Magician with to come into it from the right and a whole new set of starting holds. Is it possible this was an FA or did someone else show it to you?

I could never get motivated to start on those low, crumbly, sharp things.

Comments: Yes, the map is jacked. Cross the street at the green arrow (on the current google map) and head east and then slightly south. 2-3 minutes from the car, tops.

Comments: Jaeger's FA was of the SUPER LOW, lay-down start version, and he called it Born Defeated ... V7, naturally.

Nice problem though!

The FA of this problem was by Bob Culp & Kenny Parker in the early 1960s ... Pratt's Rock was, however, named after Chuck Pratt.

Comments: @BH ... It was not my intent to suggest you did not do NSN and very close in time to Steve's ascent. Are you saying that Steve's ascent was via a hop from the ground or a dynamic move after establishing on the face? If the former, you may have arguably done the first move in better style (defined by today's not 1980's standards). If the latter, then I really don't view your ascent as anything more than a repeat of Steve Mammen's NSN.

I'm still a newbie Bob, having moved here in 1999. Although I... more >>

Comments: FWIW, this problem has historically been known as "Clutch" (not Double Clutch).

There is another problem much further to the right known as Double Stack. Maybe that is part of the confusion.

Comments: No worries, Matt. The history for much of the quality bouldering in and around Eldorado State Park is a sordid mess at best. Nobody - AND I MEAN NOBODY - has all the problem names and FA info adequately documented for a grade A guidebook to the area.

It is a project, however, that someone should get started on.

When you get there, use the miniguide for Amphitheater - Frontside to sort out the three versions of MC.
