Comments: There's a fairly obvious large pine tree on the downhill side of this boulder. The problem "The Pedestal" is (mountainproject.com/v/the-pede... is about 1/2 of the way to flux boulder from where steve and tony suggested cutting down.

Comments: Fairly certain that Ian climbed this and called it "Hidden Treasure" in 2012 or so. I think he started matched on what appears to have been used as the right hand start hold here. I climbed it the other day and thought it was very good.

Comments: I did this one a year or two ago. I called it "Bat Arete" b/c we saw a bat hanging from it. Pretty fun v1 or 2.

Actually, did a nice problem Ian did a few years ago called "Hidden Treasure" in this area. So this one is going to be known as "X Marks the Spot" if no one objects.

Comments: I started matched in the lower jug in the crack sitting on the rock. Felt like the full line to me. Thunder From Down Under Sit v7 or something.

Comments: Yeah, I think I went to the top. Cool to see a problem on the face. Saw your chalk on this today (which is not one of the ones up there I climbed) but didn't have a chance to try it out.

Comments: Cool that you guys climbed up there. I did that big arete a while back, as well as a campus problem left of it. I also did a handful of things around where I think this problem is. Y'all have a photo?

Comments: I'm not the admin on this problem but after seeing the comments above again the description is misleading. Starts left hand on the sloper shelf in the center of the wall and right on a wide pinch near the right arete in the back of the cave.

Comments: Hey Joel -

Here are some tips I've found useful when bouldering alone -

1. Avoid problems with very uneven landings. These often require multiple pads - one on the rock and one below, for example.
2. Avoid problems that traverse - I'd rather fall from a little higher onto a pad than sprain my ankle on a tree root.
3. Consider investing in an organic slider pad (organicclimbing.com/collection... - they are incredibly useful for covering pesky rocks and f... more >>

Comments: A little background on these problems -

I was climbing at Burma with Blake, Sam, etc and thought this face looked amazing, despite being rather mossy. I cleaned up what seemed to me to be the easiest way up, which would be climbed later that day by Ian as "Waffle House."

Later, he climbed "Purple Gold," which not only is a better line but also no harder (possibly even easier) than "Waffle House" - turns out I was wrong about the easiest way up!

I don't think anyone knows what line was origi... more >>

Comments: Hey Steve - thanks. Hopefully this helps / you find it interesting. Just right of the ledge you stand on at the rest I placed a #3 HB Offset. From the rest I could reach high and place a #2 DMM peanut in the pod Dave refers to above. This is also used to "protect" (I use that loosely) "Beginner's Demise." Two moves higher, a #5 HB Offset fits nicely in the mini roof. Once you surmount the roof, there are considerably more options. I dropped in a nut and just did the last c... more >>

Comments: A tree had fallen across the landing until last spring when I moved it. Glad to see this getting a bit of traffic; thought it was super fun but a bit easier than the other old school v3 / 4 problems around these parts.
