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.
