this is not a fa, it is called spread eagle.

NOT ONLY IS THIS NOT A FA, YOU ARE STARTING A EXISTING BOULDER PROBLEM THAT IS RATED V2+ FROM ABOUT 4 MOVES IN.

PLEASE DO NOT POST UNLESS YOU HAVE CORRECT INFORMATION.

Sorry about the misinformation. I took down the FA. But I think I do this problem a bit differently than spread eagle, it's not supposed to be the same. Is spread Eagle a dyno problem? here watch this video, because I don't think they're the same routes. didn't mean to upset anyone.

I think it has been done that way (I know I have done it in a similar fashion). I think posting a eliminate or contrivance of a existing boulder problem could go on forever and is unnecessary. I climbed at taylor's for years and always wanted to do something new but the more I looked into it I realized people have been climbing there for years and basically had done everything (if you can find the Bounce and Swim guide you will see how far it goes).

I am currently working on a guide book for this area. I am planning to have it done this year.

okay, cool. Mountain Project won't let me delete the post I made, but I'm sure the admins can take it down if it's a problem. Let me know when you finish the guidebook, I'd love to get a copy!

This problem is an easier right exit of "Spread Eagle," and starts halfway through the problem. It would be probably V1.

so for all the spray, and chest thumping on this is contrived squeeze job of an exsisting route noone can post the complete route?

Or do i have to buy the guide book?

Id rather have incorrect yet current information, rather than some guy did the fa, and he only had 3 fingers, so if you use your index finger...DAB!!!!

Andrew -- do I understand you want me to delete your submission so that someone else may provide it? If that's the case -- any takers?

There is another, more accurate post for this climb with the same name. Somebody on that post clarifies that Humping The Bear is the stand start of Spread Eagle.

HUMPING THE BEAR IS NOT A PROBLEM, IT IS NOT A STAND START. IT IS NOTHING. UYES I AM YELLING
