Resonated starts low on the left side of the boulder and moves right and up the arete. It has a good mix of crimps, slopers, dynamic movement, and control. This definitely has a crux move but is pretty sustained to the top.


This is located on the Water Rock. Start low on the southwest face, and move across a few holds to the right before heading up the arete.


Some pads and a spotter.

Great problem! However, it was named, "Resonated." FA: Paul Robinson 2/20/08 dropkneeclimbing.blogspot.c… Feb 8, 2010

Thanks, Andrew! I tried to find the correct info and failed, so I thought the next best thing was to post what little info I was given and hope someone would correct me. Thanks for setting me straight. Great problem indeed! Feb 8, 2010

Hard line.. tried it years ago for a few weeks and could not come up with a send. Powerful and beta intensive this is probably one of the better lines for its grade found down in the canyon. Hope to send one day!!! Feb 18, 2010
Is this still climbable, or is there too much water? Apr 1, 2010

Hey Matt, this is still climbable as of 04/10. Someone has built a landing to stack your pads on... seems as if there might be another few weeks to work this thing but not much more than that. Apr 11, 2010

This thing broke recently.... The bottom crimp around the arete is much larger now than a month or two ago. You can see a large scar where the rock has pulled off. I think it may be easier now... but not for sure. You can match the lower bigger crimp now and skip the compression move all together, but it is still difficult. The beta now is not using the ultra small crimp above the now larger crimp around the arete. Just stay with the lower big crimp now, and go for it.... I don't know if it deserves a downgrade, more just an informational post that it has in fact broken.... Feb 16, 2013

Can anyone speak to the quality of the crimp before it broke? Still felt soft for V9 whatever the quality of the right hand. I felt I was using my hips and a really high foot more than finger strength for the bump move. Maybe for a shorter person being able to match the low crimp makes the climb more approachable.
The problem is awesome, awesome, awesome. Do this boulder. Nov 3, 2014

For those of you turned off by the wet-landing beta photos, it seems that the flood has changed the course of the creek a bit, and the landing for this is now a bed of nice, flat rocks. Really fun problem too, get on it!

I guess the break enables match beta to avoid the compression move... but if you've got the reach to execute the compression -> bump sequence you really ought to do it, so classic! Dec 8, 2016

I sent this boulder after the break a few years ago and thought it felt about V7 (matching the crimp and avoiding the compression). Last year in April, I sent it with the compression beta and though it felt much harder for sure. It's not quite as hard as it once was, but I think V8/9 is a fair grade. I can see it being really hard at 8 or a softer 9 at this point. Either way you do it, the boulder is awesome. Just go out there and do it how you want. Have fun, people!

Hey, I can't remember the guy's name (apologies), but I've run into him at the Sats and yesterday at Resonated. I have your shoes and chalkbag that you left behind! Give me a ring,
