Josh Dreher on Blue Tips


Problem is two to the right of Double Dyno starting on very small holds, move up and left to a set of thin edges, match, up and right to a small pocket, then to the lip. Check the top out before you do it, because it constantly needs cleaning. Watch for Poison Ivy at the landing!


Pad and a spotter.

Hey. I got the FA of this little gem. I think it's actually easier if you bypass the little pocket and just throw to the big slopey one. This way it's probably more like V6/7.

Feels V8--or really fingery V7. Great problem. Must do if you are in the area. Pounder McNasty makes this look like a warm-up and that rocks my pants in a good way.

It's V6/7/8 depending on how weak you are :)

Just kidding. I think it's V7...no harder, no easier.
