Comments: The sit start used to be regarded as a light 9 or hard 8.... There was a hold that broke years ago that changed the problem significantly. The stand was always regarded as V6 which used to be considered hard.... This problem was done way before the invention of the bouldering pad.
Comments: Definitely a V5 for the on-sight attempt...V4 after you have done it enough.... There is a fun, non-descript line to the left called the Blunt Arete which is a quite challenging V7, and the line to the right is still waiting...as far as I know.
Comments: It actually is an old (18 years or so) problem of Town Council member Jonathon Houck called "HOFNAR"...it's awesome to see all the psyche on Hartmans and climbing in the valley in general. Remember while you are naming your recent send, there has been three decades of climbing out in the crumbly wonderlands of Hartmans and surrounding hills by a quiet crew of old crushers. Peace!
Comments: The anchors are great (minus guanos dias)! They should be painted, but respect the present and the fact that people circuit these routes now. There is no lack of respect up in Taylor for history or the future!
