Comments: There is a problem similar to this that is described in the 'Black Bible' Utah bouldering guide, though I believe your line starts slightly to the right of this based on the chalk that I saw.

There's a high stand start right on the prow called 'Hangin Tight' and then a sit start to that line (which is what I'm alluding to above) that was graded v3, though it always felt a bit... more >>

Comments: I have to agree with Ian. While we all appreciate your enthusiasm for climbing, perhaps you could use a bit more discretion in deciding what routes to post. Most of the climbs you've contributed haven't been posted previously because they're either broken, of very low quality or seem implausible, not because they've been forgotten about.

For myself personally, I feel that my contributions are most meaningful when I... more >>

Comments: This picture is great. But how can we not ask about a guy spotting with a goat in a baby harness?!?? There has to be a great back story to that...

Comments: I reclimbed this line this Fall in order to get video of the original (dyno) method, which is the way I've always done it. I imagine that when I sent it last year it was the likely second ascent. And yes, there are more possibilities for hard slabs in the Fire Tower area. Anyhow, footage of this climb begins at 5:38

Comments: Here's the long awaited footage of this climb. Keep in mind that part of the magic of this climb is the intricacy of the beta and the process of figuring out the beta. So, watching this takes some of that away. It's something that I enjoy about slabs in particular because often the beta/sequence is less obvious. But, if you're psyched on watching it, here it is. The climb begins at 4:13

Comments: Yah, the name should be changed on this to 'Crack Em Up'. The stand is around v3 and like Ian said, the sit is around v6, but is very low quality.

Comments: With the gracious consent of Adam Winters, I was able to send this climb this Fall. In my opinion, this is one the best and most aesthetic lines in all of New Hampshire. Footage of the problem can be found below. It's the first line shown.

Comments: The undercling used on this appears to have broken, which in my opinion has increased the difficulty of this line and made it somewhere around solid V6/soft 7. It hasn't affected the difficulty of any of the other lines.

Comments: Graham-

The description and grade for this line should be updated in order to make it accurate. The grade given in the Kemple guidebook was v7, though in my opinion this line feels much harder than that. Also, Miles and I were messing around on this line a few weeks ago and I broke the crucial left hand incut/crimp that is about midway up the face. The hold is still usable but nowhere near as good as it was, so the likelihood is that this line has gotten even harder. My guess is solid v8 or up.... more >>

Comments: I spoke to Jeremiah and confirmed that I climbed this line, so now I can offer some insight about it. This is an unassuming line that is actually quite good. It looks simple, but ends up being more intricate than you expect. It is also very reach dependent, so the grade is going to vary notably depending on your wingspan. If you can reach the 'ball'/flake from the lower feet, it will likely feel a bit easier. Jeremiah admitted that he graded this on the lo... more >>

Comments: This climb is laughingly sandbagged. As someone who has climbed a lot of hard slabs, this thing is more like v8. Especially if you have fat fingers like me!

An aesthetic line for sure, but the actual climbing is pretty painful and not overly enjoyable.

Comments: Patricio--

Thanks! It sounds like James is open to a bolt being added. We just need to ask John's permission. James provided John's contact info on Supertopo. Perhaps we should reach out. I agree that it is an excellent line that is hardly going to get any traffic if a bolt isn't added.

Comments: In all honesty, this climb is harder than 'Cough Syrup', which we all know is a bit soft for v8. This line is more sustained and the crux sequence is more difficult. I would say that 'Cough Syrup' is a better line, but this one is probably more like hard v7/v8. Or if this is v7, as Troy suggests, than 'Cough Syrup' is v6/7.

Comments: I climbed this again today. And this time I got it on video, so I'll post it up at some point, though it's going to be a while as I'm heading back to Colorado tomorrow, so I'll be pretty busy for the next couple weeks.
