Telluride Bouldering Beta Part 3- The Cove & Society Turn
Here's a video I made this winter featuring some of the best problems at The Cove. (It also features footage from Society Turn.) Problems shown include: 'Sometimes I Still Feel The Bruise, Right Exit' (V0), 'Flat Top Left Arete' (V3/4), 'Dyno-mite' (V6) and 'The Lesson' (jump start, V3/4).
Some of the grades are different than the guidebook. This is an attempt to reflect what the current grade consensus is.
Special note: 'The Lesson' is an outstanding problem. The true stand start starts one move lower with the left hand on a small, angled crimp. You pull on to the wall, establish, and then figure out a way to grab the higher crimp out left. There are a couple of different options. Though it only adds about one move into the 'jump start', it is quite difficult and is likely around V8. I tried to get the stand start on video, but was unable to send it on any of the days I was filming.
As always, thoughts/comments are always welcome.
Hopefully this video will entice people to go check this area out! Enjoy!
