If you go right it is V3. Fun both ways! Apr 29, 2009

I think the V4 way is best. I was working this problem last spring, and this like 10 year old kid came up and flashed it.. it was awesome.

great problem. nice crimps and good moves throughout. Jun 16, 2009
This boulder has enough holds all over it that you can make tons of fun variations. We especially enjoyed getting on the starting holds and doing a dyno to the lip. The other fun way was to start on the left arete and traverse the lip to the far right. Dec 6, 2009
speaking of variations, has anyone ever done the dyno from the starting crimps on "pimpin' jeans" to the left part of the lip? I know the "closet dyno" goes from those crimps to the gigantic jug up and a little right, but has anyone ever fired up to that sloping divot area to the left? I did this on Sunday (the 28th) and was wondering if anyone has done it before and, if so, what they thought of it? Mar 29, 2010

I wish it was a little longer, but sweet moves. Feels a little easy for v4 though... Oct 17, 2011

A really fun variation is to start on the jug on the far right, and drop down and left into the crimps, working your way over and finishing on Pimpin' Jeans. Makes it V5 or so, as the first two moves are the hardest. May 7, 2012

The obvious line is to start directly in the middle of the boulder and climb straight up. The description and the pictures of this problem are both incorrect and confusing. May 27, 2014

jarthur, there are multiple problems on this boulder. Going straight up is a different climb altogether. Oct 24, 2015
