Description

Not the proudest line compared to its neighbors, but fun movement, height, and a short crux makes this a fun and easily protected climb. Like most V6 and harder boulder problems at Moe's, Bazooka Tooth becomes easier if you can reach through. That said, this is mostly a power climb that tests core and shoulder strength.

Start on the undercling deep in the cave. Power stem and gaston your way out to a good horizontal crimp rail, bear down and try not to dab as you transition your weight. Move up and right, make a counter clockwise spin to the glory jug, and top out. The line is pretty obvious.

Protection

1-2 pads. Use your thinnest pad to protect the crux; dab city around there.

According to the St.George bouldering guidebook the original Bazooka Tooth is a V10 and stemming is off. I think the stemming variation is super fun and deserves it's own entry. I've added Bazooka Tooth Direct to MP as the V10 original line. Apr 13, 2018

Cole, this makes a lot more sense to me. I just had word of mouth on the problem back in 2015. Revised the text accordingly. Jun 20, 2018
V6-V9 Depending on the method you use. My understanding is the original line stemmed to gain the 1st good crimp rail and then stayed to the left utilizing a kneebar in the pod. It seems very difficult to define what "no stemming" means for this problem. Nevertheless it's a great feature with many variations. Nov 27, 2018
