[Hide Comment] For a fun variation and juggier topout, head right to the Superfly finishing jug. Jan 28, 2011
[Hide Comment] AWESOME problem, the right variation (in my opinion) is way cooler. it goes right to the jug. One pad wiht a spotter, two if youre solo. It is sharper than othe rproblem in the gate but if you know the beta and are confident with the moves send it before you do anything else... if you have extra pads and are down with scoping the problem before you try it stack your pads and feel the holds. there are sweet spots on all of them and if you dont hit them they may hurt.

[Hide Comment] If it grows it goes? I definitely should have topped out towards the right to avoid the tree lol pretty easy for a V3 Oct 31, 2020

[Hide Comment] John Nguyen - I do think that tree’s grown closer to the rock over the years. When I first did this 5ish years ago, I could squeeze under the tree without bumping it. Now that feels impossible. Maybe I’ve just gotten fatter? Mar 15, 2021
[Hide Comment] Just went bouldering here today. I was surprised to see the tree has been removed. I felt like squeezing past the tree had become part of the character of the problem, but it has grown closer over the years. I use to be able to squeeze by it, but it had become nearly impossible for me to top out without at least bumping it. Apr 10, 2022
[Hide Comment] Back when 1970's the tree wasn't even close to the standard overhang. Apr 10, 2022
