Location: UT : Joe's Valley : Right Fork : Buoux Area : Gutter Ball (V3)

Comments: I've seen chalk on this line going back at least a handful of years, so it's been an established line for awhile. I climbed it a couple of years ago, but it had definitely seen traffic before that. I don't know of any further information regarding the name, FA, etc. It's a fun little line.

I like the name.

Comments: Perhaps Lee could throw one in since he's relatively local? Or maybe we could borrow a drill from someone and plug one in? I'm guessing if it's an old bolt, that it's probably a 1/4 inch, so we probably need to drill a new hole. Perhaps the omnipresent Mark Sprague will comment and tell us what to do? :)

Comments: Perhaps it should be replaced? Unless there's another way to set up a fixed line on this boulder. It would be nice to clean the upper holds, work the moves and test how solid they are. But maybe that's just me. :) I'm psyched to check this out when I get back.

Comments: Is there a bolt on top for cleaning/working the climb?


Location: NH : *Pawtuckaway : Devil's Den Bouldering : The Tusk (V6 PG13)
By: Christian Prellwitz When: Sep 15, 2016

view comment >>
Comments: This description isn't accurate.

'The Tusk' starts standing with both hands matched on an undercling to the left of an obvious arete feature (about 5 feet right of 'Tisk, Tisk' if I remember correctly). Pull on with difficulty and use power and trickery to gain the arete at right. Another couple of powerful moves gains the sloping top and a fairly easy, if tall, finish.

Honestly, this climb feel... more >>

Comments: Thanks, James. So many good lines out there on this beautiful wall. I don't have anything planned in the works yet, so far as adding a bolt goes, but if the question arises, I'll reach out to John and see what his opinion is.

Comments: John (I'm assuming), Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing your thoughts and history! I agree that if you do the bottom section, you should be able to finish the top easily (though when I climbed it, I was pumped enough that the finishing holds didn't feel quite as good), but I would hate to see someone get seriously injured if a hold broke or they happened to slip on the finishing moves. Having the run out at the finish seems anomalous compared with... more >>


Location: CO : Telluride/Norwood area : Ophir : Cracked Canyon : Secrets Of Nature (5.13a)
By: Christian Prellwitz When: Sep 6, 2016

Comments: Best route in Cracked Canyon? I think so.

The boulder problem at the bottom is amazingly good. Flowy compression moves on perfect rock. And the top section is thought provoking and engaging.

I originally thought the top section was going to be sketchy, with suspect gear, but (after top rope inspection) I found three good placements. I ended up using BD 0.1 and 0.3 cams and a #4 nut (that was bomber). I'm not saying that I'd want to test the placeme... more >>

Comments: Troy- My friend Tyler and I tried the sit start to it. It was cool, but really hard to not dab on the wall to the right. If the wall wasn't there, the sit start would be really cool. We gave up on it because it felt like subtraction by addition.

Comments: Graham-- I think if the 'Diving Board Project' (or whatever it's called) were sent, it would be in contention for the best problem in Pway. I can confirm that it's a beauty. There are a few other worthwhile lines in this area, though most of the climbing is in the v0-v4 range. I wish there were more hard lines to be found.

Comments: Graham- That's what I figured, but I agree that it looks quite hard. It seems like maybe a hold has broken? Perhaps I'll give it a shot next time I'm in NH.

Comments: Graham- I've seen the landing dry in the Fall multiple times. That seems to be the best season to climb it. You would have to pile a fair number of rocks/sticks to make it climbable in other seasons. It seems like it is perhaps fed by some underground water source that dries up or becomes less available in the Fall/Winter. But, to answer your question, I hardly think it's worth it. It's very short and very sharp.

Comments: In my opinion, this route would be a lot better (and probably see a bit more traffic) if another bolt or two was added. Honestly, one bolt would be enough to make it a lot safer. I understand the Ophir ethic, but not many people are going to want to risk potential groundfall over a sketchy cam placement to climb this thing. A line with a a similar set up that comes to mind is 'Secrets of Nature'. These are great lines, and I admire and respect the way in w... more >>

Comments: Not sure whether this is meant to be a sit start or a low stand/crouch start. I did it both ways. Definitely more solidly V5 from the sit. A decent little line.

Comments: In this case it is wrong. This is the problem to the right of the v3 you're talking about. It starts in the middle of the face.

Comments: Nice Troy. I'm happy to see that you stuck the dyno with one hand because it's good to know that it goes that way. Every time I hit the lip with one hand the swing is pretty hard to hold, but I can't get the double clutch method to work for me, so it seems like one hand will have to do for me. Crazy swing that way though.

This climb definitely favors the tall.

There's video of this problem being done out there if you're interested. It's an older video shot by Russ Greenwald. Here it is:

Comments: Hey Ross-

I use drop knees on it nowadays too, and I've upgraded this problem to V5 in the new guidebook that I'm working on, which I feel is pretty accurate as the moves are fairly burly, though I'm always open to grade suggestions.

Comments: Is there an anchor for this line? Bolted or gear? If gear, any insight on what size gear is needed to build one?

I have always been intrigued by this line...

Comments: Ian-

This climbs the sharper knife like arete. The other overhang to the right also has a v4ish climb and potential for a harder line or two. Tyler and I messed around on it a little bit a while ago. Really nice rock.

Comments: That looks about right to me, Troy. Agreed that starting lower than that is much harder.

You should check out the 'Arete Of Death'. It's only like 3-5 minutes away from the Chasm area. It's an old Dave Graham problem.

Comments: Matt--

I'm the one that mentioned it as being more suitable as a boulder problem with a drop off. There is an obvious jug that you could drop from and honestly the landing is pretty manageable with a handful of pads and spotters. You can also stick clip a high bolt to work the moves/provide a safer option. If you were to climb it as a route, the bottom section is clean, but the upper slab is pretty mossy at this point. I've contemplated rapping in and cleaning it, but I'm pretty sure this climb... more >>

Comments: I found this line when exploring in the UMWA/Small One area. It's clearly been climbed before and I thought it was pretty enjoyable, so I wanted to share it. Definitely worth the very short walk if you're already in the area.

If anyone has a different name for this boulder, let me know and I'll happily change it.
