Start sitting with a good left hand jug and a right hand pinch with a slopey right foot. Pop up to the right hand jug (crux) and stand up to follow a few thin crimps up the low angle face. Jugs at the top will assist with the easy topout.

The stand start is V0.

Not bad for something that rarely gets climbed.


On Old Gold - the boulder directly behind the Whip - this problem climbs the arete to the right of a dead tree facing the trail. Downclimb jugs next to a tree.

I did a line from the same start, but moved left from the first jug. Is that Cause for Commotion? Nov 22, 2010

No I think thats just a variation. Cause for Commotion is on a completely different boulder. It is located at the top of the hill, it is the arete immediately to the right of the obvious crack called Classic V0 :) Nov 22, 2010

Thanks Matt. For some reason I can't keep the Round Pond boulders straight. Wonder if it'd be worth dividing things up a la Boulder Natural. Nov 23, 2010
