Comments: If both v3s are v4-v5 why would they be rated v3?

Comments: Thanks guys, I live up north but my dad lives in Goffstown, so i am always looking for a close spot to his house. Jake if I head it out there I would be stoked for a tour.

Comments: Climbed this line again today, it is really hard to come to Blackjack and not take a lap on this classic! One of the best boulder problems anywhere.

Comments: This line climbs really well, it is a bit of an eliminate as any part of "The Blot' corner is off limits. However, when you climb it, it climbs naturally. I find myself repeating this climb on most trips to The Pound.

Comments: This line is not the most visual striking line, but it climbs really well, it should see more ascents.

I am torn on the grade for this, so please climb it and chime in on what you think. I thought it was going to be in the v6-7 range but with new beta it went easier. Just not sure how much easier. So help me get an idea of the grade!

Comments: I know this has been climbed, the line described in Bryce's guide climbs into 'Hueco Problem". This could be a new variation with an earlier exit. Thanks for adding it, I am looking forward to trying it!

Comments: No problem Jake! It could us e a little more detailed cleaning at the start but its worth climbing for sure! I will hopefully get to cleaning it better soon and I will try to clean the tops of Gums and Sand Wedge if I get to it!

Eddy, this is what the line is called in Bryce's guide.

Comments: This is a pretty cool climb. It was covered in moss this morning so I gave it a quick cleaning. Not classic by any means but a worthy line to keep clean.

Comments: I have often looked up at this and thought it could hold a couple interesting routes. However, I was always wary of the proximity to the road, the risk of erosion and how the locals would feel about it. Just something to keep in mind before climbing here. I would hate to see some rock dislodged and hit a car that happens to be driving by, that would not help the relationship with the locals.

Comments: Did you guys try the v8 at all? I am curious what the start position is? Can you use 'A Boy and His Dog' for feet?

Comments: I climbed this route yesterday, I started in a similar position to the blue line in your photo, except that my left hand was on the right hand you have labeled and my right was on the big sloper. This way felt v3+ish to me, a cool climb for sure.

A couple thoughts on the climb, The top could use a bit more scrubbing to promote quick drying holds. Also this start holds are not the most obvious which detracts a little from the line. However it does climb well and I look forward to going back and... more >>

Comments: I agree Tyler, when I get to Boulder Natural I always stop and climb this and Scarface as the start to my day. Those two routes are a great beginning to your warm up!

Comments: Where did you start on this? I know the low start on terrible crimp was more than likely a project.

Wherever you started, give it a name, post it up and share it with the masses!

Comments: Christian,

I have always climbed it the way of your first description and never full reached the arete. This has always seemed like the natural start, if you start as Kemple's guide says and I find it to be pretty fun. Next time I am at Blair I will be sure to give the other way a shot.

Comments: This is a very good boulder problem, if it was located in Blackjack or at The Pound it would see dozens of ascents every year. As it is, it's only a 2 minute walk from the Entrance Boulders at Blackjack, more people should venture over to it.

Comments: I think the grade of this climb should be v6. After climbing other standard v6's in the area; Provia, Mouthful of Chalk, Bulletproof and Chasm Crack, this fits right in with the difficulty of those problems.

While this climb is not the most visually appealing line, it climbs fantastic and is pretty sustained. It is a not to be missed line.

Comments: This is a pretty cool climb, a fun boulder problem to nice easy top section. I agree the exit from the dihedral to the slab at the top is no harder than 5.9, it is just not very obvious when you get there.
