Id just like to say that this boulder might be the nicest one Ive seen in connecticut. Its not that big but it is super classy and theres just enough holds on it... all the movement on this boulder is fantastic and as if it were made to be climbed.

I havent sent any of the problems but I worked Ricochet last night with a lantern and I had the best time, getting off the sidepull and into a gaston off to the right... not sure if the hold was on or not.

Awesome boulder. Gotta check this one out.
