[Hide Comment] BITD we also used to do this as a pure campus problem (no heel hooks) all the way to the finishing jug. Feb 6, 2010

[Hide Comment] The description is a bit off. The vast majority of people just dyno to the jug ledge from the starting slab. Mar 12, 2013
[Hide Comment] Fun to play with on a rainy day. Holds stay dry most of the way. Aug 9, 2014

[Hide Comment] Fun problem. I love the heel hook -- it's a cool move. A tip for that move, bump your heel all the way over to where your hand is, it makes the move a bit easier. The crimps after that are fun to weight. Jun 18, 2015

[Hide Comment] The myth, BITD, was that if you could do the Andrew Boulder, you could do Foops. I got the boulder problem and promptly failed on Foops that day. Did get it the next week anyway. Jan 27, 2016
