Alex's problem

V6, Boulder, 10 ft,  Avg: 3 from 2 votes
FA: Bobby Shih
New York > Gunks > Trapps Bouldering > Nameless Area
Access Issue: Tree Preservation and Rappelling Details

Description

A fine line that weaves itself in between The Meaning of Life and The Following. Start on the large chalked block in the center of the boulder, climb straight up through the middle, thread the needle between your neighbors, and avoid the crimp rails of the Meaning of Life (despite how close and inviting they may be - not used for hands/feet) and the jugs of the Following. A powerful move guards top, but good news! if you fall here, you fall a total of one foot to the edge of the boulder that rises behind you. A fun climb.

Note: I'm not sure if this is actually an FA, or whether or not this boulder has been done before. It's hard to imagine anything new at this point on carriage road. If anyone knows, please let me or an admin know and corrections can be made. Bobby sent it before me, after i cleaned/chalked holds and spent some time sussing out beta.

Location

In between meaning of life/the following.

Protection

3 pads minimum, 4 is ideal. Throw one into the pit(ideally a big pad), one/two draped over the rock that rises behind you, and one to guard the top out.

this climb goes straight up to the right of the pictured seam (to the right of meaning of life). start on the large block to the right of the seam and climb your way up. a powerful move to the horn rewards you with the send-jug.

[Hide Comment] I've seen this line climbed as a variation of its neighbors but don't know that it's been given a name or history. V6 seems appropriate. Nov 30, 2018
