Comments: I have to agree with you Christian, I have not sent this yet but I must say this climb has awesome rock and climbs really well. Will get more than one star from me for sure!

Comments: I have tried to pull that flake out multiple times over the last few years, with no success. Maybe the freeze thaw this year has finally made it possible, just be very careful as the landing area is very high traffic! Be best to have people keeping the walkway blocked while you pull it.

Comments: Walked up and took a look at this today. It looks pretty cool, I didn't give it any tries. If the sharp rock gets pulled out of the ground it would make the start a lot less awkward. Looking forward to climbing this rig.

Comments: I do the kneebar everytime I climb the route. Its right after the crux of the route and affords a nice relaxing no hands rest! Plus kneebars are just simply fun :)

Comments: Matt, for me I always find the holds on this route are tricky and interesting. Its all about which holds you use. There are a lot of options but not all are good.

Comments: You can see the old bolts still sticking out to the right of this boulder problem. I don't ever remember seeing a second set of holes. I haven't looked for them either though.

Comments: It would be nice for this to receive a description. Its a good boulder problem and a very frequently climbed line. 2-3 stars, surprised to see someone gave this the bomb...

Comments: Hey Tim, I believe it is called Char's Flame and went at v11, however I think it has broken since. I Think it starts on the single crimp rail above head height. The crimp can vaguely be seen in the photo a bit to the left of the green line.

Comments: We actually found it this last trip, if you walk downhill from Coleflesh, there is a fait trail that will lead you right to it. This trail will pass another boulder (The Nectar Boulder) on your left before winding right and back left and bringing you right to this line.

Comments: I second what Tim said. If you walk straight uphill from 'Shamoo" you will never find this problem. Go left and a bit up until you see the obvious stick shelter and this is just uphill, you will be able to see it from the shelter.
