This line is absolutely fantastic. Tiny crimps and feet will test one's technique. I thought it a bit stout for the guidebook rating of V1 but grades are contrived anyways. Get on it! Jun 26, 2017

Agreed, the best line is probably low left to top right but I could not find way to put that on MP without making it sound silly and contrived. My best effort was to list Bessie's udders with several variations.

Sam Daley. Next time you folks come down you should give me a ring. I love to climb with some Minnesota Super Squirrels (My girlfriend and I are both UMN alums) Nov 16, 2010

There's a boulder I recognize...I really do need to get back up there one of these days.
Sam, I've done that same traverse starting way left several years ago, it does add some nice moves.

Here's a pic from 2005 of my friend Jake on that.

Straight forward but exciting! Thanks for putting these problems up!

Jak and I also did a really awesome link up that starts on Cow Pie on the far left, under the overhang, and traverses into Bessie the Cow. A fun way to get more millage. Nov 15, 2010
