A picture would help. You climbed diagonally while everything on this boulder runs directly vertical. From the white jugs if you go straight up, you're looking for a shallow pocket up high on the face. The crack starts low on a sit start to a nimpy crimp. The Pabst relapse, you bump to a 2 finger indented crimp off a heel hook, then suffer through smaller stuff to the top. I'll try to throw a picture up - thanks for the feedback! Dec 19, 2016
Visited this boulder yesterday on the way back to CO from Alpine. Definitely a worthy stop for a few hours, although I can't say that what I ended up climbing matched the descriptions or grades given on the MP page above. I did something that was a sit start on white jugs, only I used an undercling and a R heel hook to get to the crescent sloper thing and then reached out left to some obvious face/ crack holds then went straight up to the top jug. I believe it used many of the same features described for the V6+, although I did not find it to be anywhere near that difficulty. Maybe V5-? Really cool though. The other V6 described above (first left of the V2) felt V-HARD (as in, not even close to V6), and the far left part of the boulder seemed like it would maybe be in the V6 range rather than V8-9 or whatever. Not sure if the original lines were all eliminates or what. In any case, a cool boulder not far from town and right next to awesome swimming. Great place to stop if you're passing through and need a break from driving. Jul 30, 2016
