Description

Follow the only visible route up the middle of Casino Boulder, using barely there crimps and sidepulls facing the wrong direction. The crux comes about 2/3 of the way up, holds thin out almost entirely before the top. Plant your feet, spread your weight, and pray that you have a good spot if you don't make it.

I've bouldered up to V5 in a few other areas in the NE, and can't make an ounce of progress on this bad boy at the crux. So, with that said, I don't know how accurate the V3 grade is but that's what the old guidebook has it as.

Protection

Pads & (good) spotters.

Not sure of what to do at the crux either. Feet just disappear. Fun project though! Aug 31, 2017
