Comments: The moves on this boulder are quite good, with bullet hard rock. The awkwardness of the boulder at the start does take away from it a bit, but if you can get past that you will enjoy this climb a lot.

Comments: Hi Jake, sorry about the confusion, I updated the description to better describe the route. It sounds like you were starting one move in!

Comments: I don't think the route potential on this boulder warrants any more cleaning. As it is there seems to be several small trees that were cut to make this mediocre problem possible. I think there has to be a balance in what we cut and clean based on likely hood of people climbing it in the future.

Comments: To me it looks like you are actually at Main Cliff Proper/Center and you are on the 5.8+ called Gold Digger? Was there a insecure step right at the top?

Comments: This is an interesting boulder problem and a tough one to grade. For me it felt v2ish but I am tall, it will feel grades hard for short people. Hence the v3 rating, I am trying to remain height neutral.

If you adventure out here, few will, please climb it and chime in on the grade.

Comments: I am not sure where you started this Eli, I started on a good crimp with the right and a crystal with the left, then moved up into the jugs. Is that where you started? Photo coming soon.

Comments: I climbed a short extension to this problem today, it starts more left on the nose of the boulder, then moves right, into the start holds of the original line.

Comments: This feels more like soft v1 if you start with the obvious starting holds. Using a large left know for your left and your right on the arete with a good side-pull, starting with the real small crimps under the roof makes it harder but very contrived.

Comments: The good feet and good beta will make this seem easier than v4. In my opinion it is v2-v3.

Comments: This line does not look very appealing, however, it climbs surprisingly well. Cant wait to do the full link link, starting on Mayonnaise.

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.
