Matt Findley starting the Angry Man.
Left and right angry man are two of the Front Range's most excellent sloper problems. From Jaws and the Tooth Boulder that sit below Little Twin Owls, follow a trail uphill and northeast past a boulder with two left angling highball cracks (both very good problems) continue uphill and round a large boulder with a beautiful, 25 foot V3 slab. Angry Man Boulder is behind this giant, it consists of two sloper shelfs with a years supply of chalk on them. Left Angry Man (V7/8) begins on the lowest shelf and throws out left to the horrible slopers, matches then throws for the bomber lip. The key to this problem lies in a very frustrating heel-toe lock for the first move. It can also be done without this heel toe but is a little harder. Right Angry Man (V10/11) (not that I have done it) begins on the same low set of slopers and slaps out right in a massive, initial crux move to a bad sloper. Your left hand goes to a pinch sidepull, then adjust and dyno your right hand to a bad sloping crimp just below the lip. Your left hand goes out to the bomber lip. Both of these are beautiful problems.
A good pair of shoes.
Savi sticking the horrible slopers.
Just about to send the left one...
Left Angry Man on a great Jan. afternoon.
