Location: * In Progress

Comments: I'm confused. Why not just add these areas to the appropriate state and let progress happen on its own? This idea of having an "in progress" seems silly. Just about every area in here is already "in progress".

Comments: Why not just add the area??? If it doesn't exist add it! What you're doing here seems strange.

Comments: The first half can safely be climbed as a boulder problem. If you are comfortable with overlapping hand cracks, this could be a highball as well.

Went bouldering at Canada Cliffs and met John Eagleson who gave me a tour of the bouldering. Really great problems there including one he called "The Prow". I'll post it up here. Someone should talk to him about FAs and names of problems. He knows the deal. Great resource.

Comments: Got on this today, and it is a great route to take some falls on. Bomber nut placements right where you want them to be. Fun to work. I didn't get it, so it will have to wait until next time.

Comments: That start hold is sharp! I could only give it a couple of tries before I decided to save my fingers for other things!

Comments: Cleaned and put up a few moderate problems. This is fun boulder. I claimed FAs, since all these lines were covered in large, smooth, tripe lichen. If someone disagrees and believes they may have been climbed in the past, I'm happy to remove my name.

Comments: Crow Hill has suffered from bolt wars in the past. Don't rush into things, and get the community involved, so there no surprises. Replacing bolts, I've heard, can require more skill than setting them. If you're not experienced, I recommend finding someone who is (the folks who set a lot of those are still around) and teaming up.

Comments: If it is on the far end, it is the climb called "Upper". From the photo, this looks to be the case. Why are folks naming and claiming FAs on climbs older than dirt?

Comments: To the left of this, there is Goofball which I believe had a protruding pebble. This pebble is long gone and left a "dish" where it used to be. Great problem. Maybe a V3 or V4. It's been awhile.

Comments: Certainly post it. Regarding an FA, unless it's V10+, it is extremely likely it's been sent before. Even if was V10+, there is a really good chance it's been sent. Folks have been climbing here since the beginning, the very beginning.
