Description

This is the most obvious line on the boulder. Sit start on a horizontal hold on the right side of the overhang. Follow the line of chalk to a pinch and a crimper, make a pretty powerful move onto the arete, slap for a sloper, then make a very reachy move for the awkward topout.

I find the claims of V7 by someone who consistently posts videos sending V12 to be dubious. I will repeat this boulder as I have only ever sent V7, and that just once...and it's V8, I guess.... Jun 30, 2017

It was recently brought to my attention via a gym troll that I grabbed a hold that was not "on" for my ascent. My beta was the same as the person that posted above me, and I believe that is the easiest way up on the Love Matters line. I suggested to this person if they were intent on not using the right hand sloper crimp after the low left hand where the large flake used to be, that they should name it another line variation as it is not the easiest way up "the line". Maybe they could name it "Love Contrived" or "Love Dynobro" or maybe "Love Trollcontrived Bro". Either way. I can't wait for the shit storm of people who completey disagree with this to post below. Enjoy.

Going with Hamburgler on this one. Doesn't seem to push the grade up, just takes some new beta. I went left to the big edge (former flake), up right to the sloper with a positive edge, then out left around the bulge to the original finish. Jun 24, 2017

In addition, the BIG flake finally broke off. I would say with the big flake gone and the lower move broken it still actually goes at V7. A hard V7 at that but not in the V8 range. Logged on 8a.nu at V7.

This rig broke recently...surprisingly not the jug that has been flexing hard (that thing is expoxied as shit), but the crimp that you go to right hand first. The climb is maybe hard V8 now, compared to a softy 7 before. Jun 13, 2017

That hold is destined to come off... but the new problems that are then created look like they will be fun too! Aug 28, 2016
