Description

The following post also appeared in the Uncertainty Principle thread but is reposted here because the TV Screen Center is a well known long standing Woodson problem: It was an almost perfect day late in the afternoon at Woodson today. The temps went quite cool and the rock was still clean after last week's rain. Late in the afternoon John Weinberg (Johannsolo) completed the long standing problem in the center of the TV Screen. The problem, first tried by Kevin Powell in the mid 80's was previously known under the working name of "The Emergency Broadcast System". Based on the lack of any response to previous queries on this forum regarding any known ascents, coupled with various references that refer to the center problem being "V?", it is assumed that this is the first known (verified) ascent of the problem. HDTV V6. The V6 rating was felt to be appropriate because the problem was similar in nature and difficulty to that of problems in several other bouldering areas as well as the crux moves on routes at Suicide (Idyllwild).
