Description

A very nice boulder problem, that is easier for the compact climbers. Start at the horizontal edge at the beginning of Tendonitis Traverse. Go up 12" with the left hand to Tendonitis, then up right hand to a hold with a little "roof" over it. Figure out really gnarly feet, throw to the sloping lip of the roof out left (there is a vertical feature in the middle of this hold), and up to the apex with the right hand. Classic.

Location

Start on the 10" x 2" flat horizontal at the beginning of Tendonitis.

Yea this line is called CJMD. It's one of the better independent lines in the Black Hole area. Fun line with the worst sloper's in town!! Sep 11, 2009

V8+...I am working on starting it from the Air Jordan start. Brick hard, and certainly will bump up the grade some. Just have to get used to rolling. Do you know if the CJ stands for Chris Jones? Sep 15, 2009

CJMD stands for Chris (Hill) and Jimmy (Surette) Makin' Ducats...which was a joke, since they were painting houses at the time.... Dec 11, 2009

Thanks, George. I have never met either...but know both are monster climbers! Heard their names a lot in the eighties. Seems like most of the climbers talk to have a sent/never sent issue with this one...( a lot of other problems are that way, too). Dec 30, 2009

What a fun problem! Some good tight static moves into some explosive dynamic movement - sweet! Jan 25, 2010
