Description

This is the obvious line as you walk up to the boulder. It comes out of the hole off a big jug with barely any feet. As the name implies, a kneebar gets you through the first move, and a knee bar pad helps. Climb up through some tension, thuggish moves to good crimps. Head up to the "crimp block" and up over through crimps and slopers to the scary but protectable topout. There are a lot of moves on this one. It is very atypical for Eldo. It is mostly big holds with big moves. We are not necessarily claiming the FA, but Bob Horan commented that he had never seen anyone on it, and we also did a lot of cleaning on the topout! This is a VERY good problem for the grade. It is a great addition, go try this thing with a group, and bring a kneebar pad! Proud line!

Location

The problem is in the corridor below Germ Free. It is an obvious line once you see it.

Protection

4-5 pads is ideal. This makes it much nicer to commit to the topout. At least 2 pads are needed.

Hey Murph! The Truth Boulder is above this block. Here is a photo of the earliest ascent I know of. Damn good chance it was done before Jason did it though.

Right on, good to hear, Andrew. I was surprised by the lack of cleaning on it for how well it climbed! Thanks for the update!

Hey Stephen. Thanks for the submission. Good name. Nice work, Trevor, on the send. This one has indeed been climbed before. I think it was 2008-ish, I was there with Jason Kehl and Justin Wood. Jason sent it after working that first move for a bit. Great problem. Grade seems about right. I took some good photos of it that day. I'll dig around for the images. Cheers! Feb 24, 2013
