Description

This climbs the obvious right side of the face, while always keeping the right hand on the corner/arete.

Location

Coming up the hill one can't help but notice a boulder that literally looks like a television screen. Up from the road about 40 feet. See pic.

If one steps around the right corner and uses the same corner but (facing east) tries using the left hand via a lieback, the route upgrades to a 5.11 Mar 5, 2006

Correction: The problem up the center of the television screen is called HDTV V 6/7, and is one of the test pieces on the hill.

Slapstick, put up by Tom Scott in the mid 80's is on the east end of the tv screen, to the left of the woodward arete. He called it B1 or V 3/4ish Dec 2, 2011

HDTV? Holy renaming batman! Dec 2, 2011
Ron got the problems right. The center problem (HDTV) had the working name of Emergency Broadcast System for as many years as I can remember, initially given when Kevin Powell first tried it. Since KP didn't do it, when Weinberg did, Johnny got the right to name it anything he wanted (seems reasonable to me.) Dec 6, 2011
