Description

Start on two incut rails/crimps, and make a hard deadpoint move up and right. After you stick the hard first move, there are a few different possibilities for moving up and left to the slopey ledge/jug. After the slopey ledge/jug, hold it together for the lip.

If you want the beta spray, watch Christian's video.

Location

Approaching from the trail and looking at the boulder, this is the furthest line on the right hand side (west side) of the boulder. The line in the middle is a V7+.

Protection

Two boulder pads are nice - one for flat ground, another blocking the boulder directly behind the landing.

I definitely didn't get the FA on this one. It was put up long before I even arrived. Jim Hurst might know who did it first, but it's always difficult to pin down with these older climbs as everyone remembers it differently. It's a good one, that's for sure. Calling it V3/4 in the new guide.

There's actually a V8, a V9 and a V7/8 to the left of this. There's also a really good dyno that hasn't been done yet. Start with your right hand on the left starting hold of Karma and your left hand on the jagged, incut gaston/edge - jump to the jug on Karma, and finish as for that problem. Might be up your alley!

All of this info and more will be in the new Telluride bouldering guidebook, which I'm working on at the moment. It should be finished by the end of this summer, assuming we climb all of our secret projects by then. :) Anyhow, I'll touch base with you at some point soon as I'd love your help developing a few of the areas I have left to finish off.
