Description 

Obvious nice clean boulder with one of the Best landings anyone could ask for in the area. Look for obvious traversing seam going up its face. Tons of problems and heavily bouldered. No idea on FA's of any of this I remember when I was here last in '06 there was still tons of chalk on holds.

Traverse Problem V3 6A  MN : Blue Mounds SP (Luverne) : ... : The Metamorphic Rock
Same sit start as "Slap Happy" pull up on tiny crimps that are actually really good. Work some good angle work matching feet in the seams as you move along this traverse and up at the other end of the boulder. You could be a lazy climber like "Matt" :) and just smear feet but that looks silly and defeats this beautiful line. Traverse it matching hands to feet. V3. If you feel the need to monkey Traverse it, it clocks in round V0-V1. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
