[Hide Comment] This is a great problem, I like to go strait up from the rail on the pinch and his small crimpy friend and through the beautiful polished slopers. Same grade.

As for FA's, my guess is that people have been doing it for years (chalk is usually all over this route). Oct 11, 2010

[Hide Comment] Conor, I know what you mean. This problem is what bouldering is all about. I can't wait to venture back to blue mounds and boulder. We should have a party this spring! I'll look forward to it! Nov 15, 2010
