I want to see what you guys would consider the king line of v10s in the region.

Pretty select group of people who can climb this grade

Not anymore, the landscape has changed a lot in the last few years. Most kids who get serious about the sport seem to hit that grade.

Tons of people are climbing double digits, or at least working/projecting them.  Any others?

This isn't quite strictly the tri-state area, but the New England Bouldering site (which was resurrected but is now a ghost town again) polled its users for the best problems of each grade in the region a couple years ago, here are the results:

Speed of Life, Stereogram, and Babies With Rabies at Farley were top 3, Satan's Sister Sally/Satan on a Halfshell at Rumney was next.

Personally I'd add Press Your Luck at Happy Valley, and Pipe Dreams at Farley (some call it 9).

Good luck!

For v10 my vote would go to Diesel. Of course, it’s not likely I’ll ever climb it (even v6s at Ice Pond seem to kick my ass, just not my style) but it’s a sick problem.

For a v9+, Rabid Wolverine in the New Lost City at the Gunks. It got everything, awesome position, exposure and fantastic movement.
