Comments: New low start to 'Smaug':


Grade stays the same, but now feels more solid, and gives you a nice little pump leading into the crux sequence.

Comments: Ah yes, one of the most unassuming & diminutive problems around, but the holds and moves have a surprising quality to them... And the views towards Arlington Peak aren't bad either. I like warming up here and then dropping down to the Cracked boulder.

Comments: If you hop your feet onto the bulge while hanging the seam, you can make a big move straight to the good pocket and skip the shallow dish and nips. Overall probably easier that way, but may not work for shorties. Great line though, sweet holds and sequence!

Comments: Mega fun problem. Grading is tough, I'd say 8, could clean up quite a bit as well. My sequence sounds a little different, might make things a bit easier:

Do the first left hand move, then bump right hand up to vertical sloper. Left foot goes to left start hold ledge, and move left hand to next sloper. Then you can take right start hold as a heel, and use this position to get the sidepull edge, and bump again to the good sloper rail.

I wanted to search the surround environs a bit more but the f... more >>

Comments: Doing it from the sits adds a couple nice flowy moves and keeps it around the same grade, but adds a little oomph.

Comments: I believe this is called 'Pit Viper', super fun. We just cleaned up 3-4 lines just to the right (walk through the small corridor between the boulders, with the fallen tree) at around V3-V7. Super fun lines that are also cleaning up with traffic, but once everything is said and done I think this boulder will host 5-10 good lines. Check it, yo.

Comments: "This thing makes me cry. So tricky. I've never sent it easily."

Ha, I've had similar experiences. Well, one day it'll go easily first try, swoop and send. Then I'll randomly be in the area a few weeks later, think 'I'll jump on this one for a quick send' and be stuck in front of the Mystical Steps 'til the sun drops.

Get the potato chip, pop to the patina.

Comments: Yeah I worked the sit long ago with that sharp left crimp, but the positioning never felt good to the point I just always did it from the half-stand.

After finally seeing Bob's beta (really low left hand to start, almost on the ground), it somehow flows so much smoother and actually makes the start feel fun. The comparison to 911 can be a tough call, as I feel like if your 6ft+, 911 is pretty mellow (easy to reach the good crimp from the good foot), but seems harder for shorties. Either way th... more >>

Comments: Well I know the Kennedy Ridge trail takes you to Ocean View trail and the old Camino Cielo, which you can follow and eventually be able to drop from the top down into Matillija Wall area. Pretty sure this would be fully legal access, although certainly much further travel.

I too would be interested in any updates, and can help out doing trail work!

Comments: Keeps breaking, keeps getting better. The main foothold for the transfer from the inside to the lip is gone. There are a variety of ways to solve this now, but all seem harder than the previous beta. The rock that's left is solid though, so this one is really cleaning up and should prove to be a lasting classic. Probably in the 7ish range now.

Comments: Yeah we should totally move it from Enlightenment Ridge to here, as it's one of the gems of the boulder and how I usually refer to the area (The Darkside).

Comments: Pine is back open. Glory! Rain about right now though, let those rocks dry!

Anyone know any history/knowledge of this problem? It's in the gully between the Groupsites and the First Site, by the Smokey the Bear sign.

Yeah, the rock can be a little crusty, but sometimes that's what life is about. The the moves are fun and the view is awesome, with the topout leading right to a sitting throne.

Comments: Hmmm, not sure. That might have been 'The Highway' (that one is pretty hidden, on the back 'mountain side' of the Spine), near OG Arete. This one is on the Ocean side, the front side of the Dragon boulders.

Coming out the right side of the cave is still open project, has two options and definitely goes. Probably in the 8-9 range?

Comments: Only done the 'Cheat start' (straddling the cave), but even still it's mega classic. Had trouble sticking the original start move to the sloper pinch in the sun...
Must come back for an early morning or night sesh.... Sooo good.
