Comments: This problem was featured in Friction Addiction and was called Hurt Locker V4. Greg and/or David may have commentary on this issue.

Comments: Flash Gordon (Peter).... For some reason I remembered a starting flake, maybe it was slopers. I honestly don't remember. In any event, I can guarantee you we're talking about the same boulder, as I have pictures of it, too. Like I said, directions were confusing for me back there, so maybe it is the northeast arete. If you did it many many years ago, then I would not be surprised if it was FA. Nice one, Peter!

I hope you will continue contributing. Deciding how to add The Blue Whale Area (or wh... more >>

Comments: Flash - I agree about the lack of beta on mp.com for Eldo. There ARE hundreds of problems all over ECSP proper and just outside its boundaries. My intention was not to dissuade you from posting problems on mp.com. My feeling is this: if you are going to contribute something in an area many of us know and love, please take a couple extra minutes to do it right.

Will did do Southpaw from a sds on the flake quite few years ago when the Blue Whale area was developed and the grade is just one group ... more >>

Comments: I echo Wayne's comments. What exactly is the point? Except for a few Eldo regulars and those that have gotten tours of this secluded spot, nobody has any clue where this is.

FWIW, I was under the impression that the arete in the beta photo was put up a few years ago by Will LeMaire, Southpaw ~V4/5. In addition, I believe this is the southeast arete, but that could be easily confused in this disorienting place.

Comments: I've forgotten her name, but Ben told me a story about a teenage girl who tumbled off the high crux section of Canvas and walked away (shaken I'm sure). There is real potential to get very badly hurt on this rig with the crux just before the lip. If a foot blows during a 2-3 move sequence up there, you are going for a not-so-fun ride.

Comments: Good to see something in Eldo I haven't seen before, even if it is a slab ... j/k Misha!

Anyway, at this point I would be very cautious claiming FAs anywhere near Eldorado Canyon State Park. People have been consistently hiking off trail all over western edge of Eldo for decades putting problems up in the most obscure places that are not in any guide. There are several hundred problems back there, some as far as 3 miles from the car and WAY WAY off-trail. Something as close as you are describin... more >>

Comments: Maybe it was chalk, but the word Rieger was prominently scrawled across the little overhang. I'm curious where the photo went? FWIW, Scott Hahn told me this problem was called Rieger in about 2005 or so, so that's what I always thought it was.

Comments: Godzilla is actually the right line in this photo. Far left line you are uncertain about is Main Street. The middle line, which doesn't get much traffic and is quite hard, is Four Dollar Arete.

Comments: Wet Carrot begins on the jug at the lip of the roof and heads right and up. It was put up by the guys guys who developed the easier stuff in the cave long before Dark Waters, Formula 50/500, etc, etc. Can't say for sure that JJ did it from the underclings first, but the lower problem which adds two moves was done by JJ in the infancy of the Dark Waters cave. He called it More Wetter Carrot, staying with the spirit of the original problem.

Comments: pfwein - I deleted my previous post, since you've clarified yours.

You will know if you do Reverse Consideration. Switch the hands in the first beta photo above and you've got it. It's a completely ridiculous contortionist crossover that is really fun and made possible by perfectly placed feet. Match and throw to the lip. It's also got some cool history, being a Holloway problem.

True Consideration is thought to be the original way The Consideration was climbed ... without the small LH crimp t... more >>

Comments: I'm not certain, but based on your description Joshua, I believe this problem is listed in Benningfield's first Colorado Bouldering guide and was done in the 1990s. Check out the original Colorado Bouldering and feel free to clarify. If I'm wrong, I'll delete this comment. And yes, that landing is complex to say the least - almost worthy of an R rating - with lots of questionable flakes under the roof before the lip.

Comments: Sweatpants - trend up and left from Toe to Toe & the BBC Boulder between the trail that heads to the Third and the Upper Satellites. If you get the US proper, come back down the steep main drainage heading east until you get to it. Halley's Comet and its sds, Richter Scale, are on the downhill side of a large block in a drainage culvert, maybe 300 yards as the crow flies from Toe to Toe, the BBC Boulder, etc.
