Lots of confusion surrounding various starts on this boulder so I made this image to help you connect where you started to how awesome you are.  Sorry if you're "not awesome@SEMICOLON@" keep inching your way down the lip and one day you'll be "mindblowingly incredibly awesome."

To be clear, I am not saying it should be up to the community to decide. I am saying that it should be up to the individual. If someone wants to climb a V8+, he or she can start with "wide hands" and if that person wants to climb a V11 he or she can start with matched hands. The information about the alternate starts exists already, and, as such people are (and should be) free to start wherever they please. Jan 13, 2015
Looks like my illustration is now out of date and climbing on top of this boulder from the low rail is v2 / 3:

I guess we're going to need to break down and spray paint some starting zones on the boulder! Should we go with a variety of colors, or different shades of the same? You know, sort of a spectrum of awesomeness...

(I feel obligated to note that I am being massively sarcastic, and would be appalled if this actually happened - god forbid if someone read this comment, thought is was a good idea and actually executed it.) Jan 20, 2015
