Matched at the start and the line

Description 

Start matched on the low jug on the left side and compress up the arete. Fun climbing


Location 

From Captains Traverse go right up the gully next to the cliff band go through a notch and head left through the corridors and it will be on the left. Can also be reached from the top, veer right at the top of the ccc after the routes and you can drop into it.


Protection 

a few pads, landings a little weird. A spotter would be good too.

Nice send Ian! This is a really unique boulder and I'm psyched on it. Bring the spotters, the landing drops away.

Sweaty got very close today. He also fell at some of the spots we were worried about and with a spot along with 3-4 pads it was totally fine.

VIDEO for all who care

havent checked it out but seems that bottom block is off from the video...if things are contrived and are off they should be listed as so on mountain project?

I think a safe assumption would be that detached blocks are generally off because.....well.......they're detached. There are obviously times when they're appropriate like on Sea Of Purple. This is not one of those cases and this problem is in no way contrived.

I care! It should be pointed out that he does about 13 more foot moves than me. Waste of energy sir. waste of energy. And steve is correct, detached blocks are almost never on homie.

Sweet vid Ian! Now that's how every climb in your vids should be. No speed up or slow down. Just climbing at it's best! Great music, great angles, great climb. Nice work.

Awesome problem! This is a new classic and should be on everyone's to-do list.

I chickened out on this today with only 2 pads and 1 spotter, but definitely want to get back on it. Was there any thought toward excavating the landing area or is it going to remain as is for a little extra spice factor?

Just so good! We ran a train on it today with Eggnuts, Keith and I all sending.

I heard that an aging, balding, fat "climber" broke the right arete crimp off late last November. He wholeheartedly apologizes to the climbing community for this grievous error, but would like to point out that since it's already broken off now, nobody else will get injured as a result.

Sent this today! First day on it. Amazing climb! On to sex and chocolate. Oh and we built up the landing, making it a bit safer. Pads sit flat now.

Steve Schultz found this little history lesson on climbingdevilslake.com and thought "The Breadslicer project" was almost certainly what became Fat Pants when it was projected previously.

Comments: 'Breadslicer' (V8-9?) I found and attempted to establish this boulder problem in August 2003 and then broke my arm and was unable to complete it--nevertheless gave it the tentative name 'Breadslicer'. Something of potencial interest that seemed untouched by human hands and seems completely unknown by the locals I've spoken to. It's a sick overhanging 13' problem: a razor-sharp starting hold that looks and feels like a serrated blade (hence the name 'Breadslicer') and two hard variations (the left solution or the right solution) with a tumultuous three-tiered fall-zone requiring about four trustworthy spotters, the whole thing being well-protected by nesting yellow-jackets!! You'll need about at least three bouldering pads if you plan to go for it.

Hidden well-behind the Guillotine Area (about as far north as you can venture before you are in the woods) it's still worth checking out. The holds are few and far-between, just barely good enough, tricky, and there is no room for error. An early fall lands you on the sharp bridge of a rock; a mid-point fall will send you into the second tier--a precarious position for the spotters (the spotters will need spotters); and a higher fall will send you out into a third lower tier--which adds another 6-10 feet to the fall! And if that isn't enough, the problem is well protected by nesting yellow-jackets!!

If you decide to pass it up there are a number of easier problems between the Guillotine and 'Breadslicer', about 100 feet east of 'The Flatiron'. I've seen no-one outside of myself climb these either.
