Shumin climbs "The Face" while Dan spots...

Description 

This route is located at the leftmost part of the Three of a Kind Wall. This is a soft and pretty good quality sandstone face. Route goes straight up to the top, but beware of loose flakes.

Protection 

A crashpad and someone to make sure you don't hit the tree if you fall.

This is one of the best problems at Flag. Do it from a sit start for a crimpy V5.

Benningfield notes a "V6" to the right of "The Face" in Colorado Bouldering. Is he referring to the SDS to this problem or is there something in between "The Face" and "Round Pebble"?

There are 4 highball problems between The Face and The Culp Route (now known as Round Pebble). All are in the V4 to V6 range. Not sure what problem Benningfield may or may not be referencing. His guide to Flagstaff in Colorado Bouldering I covers a little more than a 1/3 of Flagstaff's boulder problems. I'll be putting the Three of Kind Wall Miniguide up on my blog soon. You'll be able to see it all there.

There's no way the sit start is V5. Sorry boys, but I don't climb V5 yet managed to get my arse up this one from the sit. I'd say V3+.

The jug for the sds was lying on the ground today. The sds is little more reachy now, but feels about the same.

It's a V3 still (even with the broken hold). The name of the problem is actually Little Sloper Boy, just FYI.
