Adverse Conditions

V9, Boulder, 12 ft,  Avg: 3 from 1 vote
FA: Taylor Roy
Tennessee > Obed & Clear Creek > Lilly Boulders > Cave Area Boulder


This roof problem is unique for the Lilly Boulders. Instead of the usual down-pulling holds, this problem is all about underclings.

Start with your left hand in a good, waist-high slot. Move right to steep, blocky underclings in a roof. Use kneebar technology to reach the next set of underclings and a tight crimp slot, then fire for a huge flat finishing hold. Top out.

Would probably be V10 without kneepads. Hard to find dry- hence the name.


On the right side of the boulder.


Two crash pads, and two kneepads.
