Just a correction, the top out is up and right. Sorry about the sandbag!

To start on the two pockets I had to stack my pads. Has anyone started the problem lower - with right hand on good pocket and left on small undercling? Great problem

Maybe the best problem on the Front Range?

I don't know about "the best on the Front Range" but it's got to be in the top 20 or 30. This problem alone is worth the trip to Millenium Boulder.

Brian did the FA off the ground starting with his right hand in the pocket and his left hand pushing against the wall. He then reached up right hand to the next pocket, went again to the next left ahnd pocket and then jumped to the top. I think he also graded it V8.

Sorry, I meant he reached left hand up to the "starting hold" then went again with his left hand, then jumped. Sorry about my dyslexic arse.

Was wondering what the other names and ratings were for the rest of the climbs on the Millenium Boulder, since there are obviously more than 3 (particularly the problem starting in the "mail slot," going right and then up with a big reach from a medium pocket. I've heard V6-7.) Is there too much controversy?

No, there's no "controversy" about the Millenium Boulder that I know of. Seems that people just haven't posted all the problems on this site yet. Check out CO Bouldering Vol 2 by Benningfield for more route descriptions and grades.

The rock quality on PC while very solid is also VERY sharp. I don't think 4 star problems can be very sharp. This bloc is not a world class boulder. 2 stars.

There is a very obvious, lower, left hand undercling that is mentioned above that eliminates the need for stacked pads/cheater blocks. This seems to be the natural/logical start.
