Climber getting ready to launch up Double Trouble

Description 

This would be a classic if some moron hadn't chopped the bolts. The one time I climbed it, one bolt existed to the right of the crack; it's gone. People that pull this nonsense should be hung by their tongues over hot coals. Getting off the ground is a good boulder problem in itself. From there on it's grip city to the crack. The way it stands now, it's X. TR seems the reasonable way to climb it at this point.

Led this back in 2004, after the mentioned chopped bolt. Was able to place a yellow/red hybrid Alien in a thin slot in the up-n-right diagonal brown streak about halfway up. Climbed past and was very relieved to put next piece in on the start of upper crack.

Great practice on small slopy hand- and footholds. Lots of features which look from the ground like they should be positive edges ... turn out not to be when you get there.
