I think EZ got this one first, but let me think I was getting the FA until I topped it out!

Sent as soon as I grabbed the second hold correctly. THE standard for quality bouldering. Amazing patina like holds, movement, aesthetics. Simply put, the best.

First V6 at the lake! Haven't climbed much here, but this is an instant classic in my book. Totally worth the hike!
