Comments: Where does it actually start? That seems like the most logical place for it to start, isn't that the starting rail that all these routes use as a common start?

From the description posted it seems like Mike and I just started matched on the starting right hand start hold and moved into a hold a few moves later on, eliminating a few unnecessary moves to get into the crux and meat of the climb.

My buddy did it the same way the description says and is isn't very different then the way mike and... more >>

Comments: This is a fun but short climb, when it gets cleaned up it will surely see some more traffic by people who venture up to The Conditions Boulder!

Comments: So just so I have it correct you start both hands matched on the chalked flake about a foot left of the tree?

Comments: This is a very high quality boulder problem! Fun engaging moves on a variety of holds make a great line!

Mike Thompson thank you for making a video with excellent beta, with your beta I was able to flash this line, Thanks!

Comments: I think this is the most sandbagged climb at Pway, if we were all honest with ourselves we would probably call it a v5, maybe harder. I would highly recommend this climb, great climb!

Comments: In the newest version of Bryce's book this is called 'Methods of Escape". This is a cool little line, I tried it at the end of the day a few weeks back. looking forward to going back to it. The Chasm Boulder sure does have some awesome lines!

Comments: Mark I am all for changing it, I agree something more inviting sounds like a good idea. Parking Lot Boulders or something along that line will probably be best. I leave it up to you.

Comments: This is without a doubt as hard as Far From Feral whether they are .9+ or .10a is really splitting hairs, I think for both it depends if you get the sequence right. I believe this has better climbing than FFF. Both are nice routes and sure to be crowd pleasers for years to come.

Comments: This is a fun climb and a good addition, it has interesting climbing through the lower corner to cool face moves at the top. I just hope it stays dry enough to make it see some ascents

Comments: Mark, if you look at Bryce's book and its site you can see that Bryce is consistently updating the book and I know Magic Woods and Area 51 are two areas that he is still looking to update. Not having all the information at the ready like the more often climbed areas makes it a more time consuming project. I am sure when more info comes to light Bryce will continue his hard work and update it.

Comments: With this area receiving more attention in the past few months, does anyone thing it would be wise to break this area down further? I was thinking into four sections, Swamp Thing Boulder, Mad Hatter Boulder, Stoner Boulder and Chasm Boulder. Any thoughts? Just figured it might be easier to do it now with just a few routes in the database.

Comments: First Recorded Ascent. Rumney's bouldering history can be a bit of a mystery, unless I clean something of tons of loose rock, I assume it might have been cleaned before and just not recorded. So as not to offend anyone I don't take credit for the official FA just the First Recorded Ascent.

Comments: I had originally thought that it might be more along the lines of V5, but after some discussions with friend who have climbed the route or tried it we settled on V6. Climb the monsters lines and compare and lets get a good consensus grade for it!

Comments: Christian glad you liked the route so much, what do you feel grade wise on it? We had a real hard time deciding on one.

When I cleaned this line of it was quite and endeavor. There was a lot of think moss and big chunks of rock in the moss and the crack was jam packed with small rocks that took some tinkering to get out. While I was doing this I started to clean the left most arete on the face Mark mentions above, the top was fairly cleaned off but the face needs a bit more scrubbing, they do l... more >>
