Description

Sit start on low flat edges down left. Head up and right through hallway on rails and low feet to exit and top out at end of tunnel. Quality boulder problem with unfortunate key feet that continue to crumble a little

Location

From the Hardened Criminal boulder continue through hallway and up trail above slabs. About 200' up and left will be the "railway tunnel" on your left. Here lies the problem.

I agree that Komodo and Fake Eppulator are the relevant boulders with which to compare this one in terms of difficulty, since they are very similar in style (all involve overhanging rail-like features). However, Tight & Light felt (at least to me) significantly harder than Fake Eppulator, like a full grade harder. Consequently I think it merits a solid V7 grade. But hopefully more people will weigh in over time. May 19, 2015

The holds are pretty spaced apart, from the sit start there are four main rails you travers before you climb up to top out... the only thing that is kinda changing is the lower two foot rails. May 3, 2012

Watched Chris get the FA, then sent right after. I felt it was a solid grade harder than Komodo, if not a little more so. As physically difficult as the B1 lunge sit start if not a little harder,but with a more controled predictable finish. So I'm giving it a v6/7 rating for now. I'm curious to hear what other people think. Apr 1, 2012
