Left finish is SOLID V10. Straight up has not been done. I don't know how it can thusly have a grade-you idiots and the right version has been called solid V11 by several climbers including Dave Graham.

The same Dave Graham who called Golden Rows of Flows V11 and Left El Jorge V12 in the park? Can you say "soft?"

Do you even know what V11 is supposed to feel like? What I do know is that Dave Graham has a better idea what V11 feels like than you. All day long for the rest of your climbing days, Dave Graham will know better than you and almost everyone else.

Find something more productive to do with your time than worrying about the precise grade on Dave Graham's problems.

Actually, since I have bouldered V11 in Hueco, RMNP, and the Poudre, as well as Font, I think I have a pretty good idea of how hard it is!!!

I [don't] know what all the fuss is about. The person who did the FA told me the other day that he thought it was around a V9 but never graded the problem at the time.

I have done over 10 "V10s" in the Front Range, and I think that the left finish of Can Opener was the hardest one of them all.

There is word that this problem broke. Was it the starting hold?

The starting flake did break. I noticed this June '08. The position for the hands seems pretty similar, but the initial heel hook is gone / very poor.

Has the problem been done since? Any word on a new grade?

Climb with a rope, not a pad you hippies, you guys really care about a 10ft boulder, that's mind boggling.
