Is there REALLY only 1 listed problem for La Cueva? I'd love to climb and map some others with some people that are in the know. Love the spot, it's so close to home. Mar 25, 2016
I've bouldered many times at Cuevas as we called it since the mid nineties, and my friends and I finished several decent problems, (though nothing past about V2, since we were beginning).
I haven't climbed in many years, but now I'm getting back into it, so I'd like to contribute some of the problems we did to your section here.
I tripped out when I saw the Flea Protein post!
Javier Placencia and I named that problem when we were bouldering there with Espo and Ploss in '99 or so.
Sorry for the history lesson ,LOL, but if anyone was wondering...
Flea protein is a strange name, but it came about from me telling Javier about an army project I read about where they were using protein from flea legs to try to produce high-tech shock absorber/jumping devices for the military.
Jav liked the term so much, he gave it to this climb and I guess it stuck.
There is a boulder on the northwest side of Cuevas we called Blood Boulder because one of the problems (about V2 to 3) has a super sharp flake hidden in a pocket which is impossible to see until you get cut by it.
There are 2 other problems we did on this boulder.
There are several other problems I'd like to post as well. Nov 8, 2006
