This route has very small holds that rip up your fingers apart. The very small holds are the crux.

So when did "PG, R, X" ratings get attached to boulder problems?

Not a V7 plus then....? I have a story: one time I read on mp.com about some sick boulder problems out in Rampart Park. After about an hour of whacking bush, I finally resigned myself to the fact that the "boulders" were really the 4 foot high piles of graham cracker consistency rock I had been blatantly ignoring. Did you have similar experience here, willo?

Funny... That story sounds familiar to my own... When climberman14er put up the info about Rampart Park I had to see if it was true. After verifying that the largest climbable blocks were indeed "piles of graham crackers," I notified John McNamee (site admin) who said he'd try to contact climberman14er for more detailed beta and photos. I'm assuming he couldn't back it up so John took it off the site.
Phil, you didn't by any chance stumble across climberman14er's 100 ft. Rampart Park Waterfalls? I bet they're coming into season soon. See you there!
