This problem is on the boulder behind and to the left of the Hueco Boulder and climbs perfect big edges up a long steep wall. Classic in my opinion. Larry Schaffer got the FA of it.


Pads and spotters.

Figured as much Greg, we have the same problem in Chosslorado ... with parties rediscovering problems put up 30 years ago and unsure how to proceed. In the end it does not matter, but I just figured a problem this classic should not have a name like "Crimp Ladder." Jan 2, 2010

I'm 99.9% sure that Larry Schaffer did this problem first (as he most likely did for many others). I don't know if he named it. Jan 1, 2010

This problem was featured in Friction Addiction and was called Hurt Locker V4. Greg and/or David may have commentary on this issue. Dec 28, 2009
