Comments: Lee-

Just as a heads up, you put this video under the wrong climb.

Comments: Nick, what are you doing? That's why big/tall people shouldn't be allowed to climb. They're too heavy, especially for the chossier rock around here! All joking aside, the climb feels exactly the same to me. However, if V2 is at or near your limit, you may find it a bit more powerful now. There is a small crimp left of where the pocket formerly was that might be useful for those that need to match in this spot.

Comments: It's crazy to give this only three stars. I would vote that this is the best sport climb in Telluride on the best rock in Telluride. Looks like Patricio agrees!

Comments: This climb is mistakenly? called 'Sleeper' in the Caldiero guidebook and given v7.

Here's video of the FA to clarify that they are the same:

Comments: Ross-

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... more >>

Comments: This is not a first ascent. It is documented in both Utah bouldering guides and has been climbed for many years. It's unnamed and is given v3 in both books. The information should be changed to reflect this.

Also, it is definitely not a grade II route, so that should be removed from the description.

Comments: Really good line on really good rock. The first two moves are definitely the crux, but it stays reasonably sustained after those moves (I managed to fall 3 times post crux!). Not quite as good as its neighbor, in my opinion, but still really good!

Not sure what the story is with the completely manufactured line/holds on the left side of the boulder - three drilled handholds and one drilled foothold....

Comments: I thought this climb was absolutely amazing. Great movement and flow. Bullet rock. Powerful, yet intricate, with each move harder getting progressively harder. Hard for the grade. The V9, which is also solid at the grade, took me fewer tries.

Comments: Thanks for letting me know. Good rock quality and cool holds, but felt pretty soft for the grade.

Comments: I did indeed do it. I scoped and cleaned the slab a bit on a rope first, though. The hardest moves are probably getting established on the slab, but if you don't know where the holds are or what the sequence is, the slab will definitely feel like the crux. It could use a good cleaning, but it will be a lot of work.

Comments: There is also a sit start to this problem that goes around v5. You start matched on the obvious incut flake down at to the right. Move up to the crimps and then finish as for 'Center Direct'.

Comments: Yah, it's funny because 'Rampage' was upgraded from v3 to v5 in High On Moab and, having climbed both, I would say that 'Press Tight' is harder than 'Rampage'. 'Rampage' certainly requires more commitment, but the crux on 'Press Tight' is definitely harder. I also think ... more >>

Comments: Well I climbed this line yesterday. It definitely climbs differently post break. The weird press cross through move is probably not possible anymore, but I never liked it that way anyway. :) I actually ended up sending it with my original beta that I was trying before we figured out the press move. Personally, I think it's cooler and harder than before. As for the grade, I always thought that it was more like v8 and post break I definitely feel like it's s... more >>

Comments: I climbed this a week ago. It's a fun line. However after taking a look at some guidebooks, I believe this line has been documented in 'High On Moab'. It's called 'Press Tight' and in typical Big Bend fashion is graded v3. The description in the book is a little confusing, but I believe it's referring to this problem.

Anyhow, I thought this climb was pretty... more >>

Comments: Something needs to get changed here because you basically have the original description of what is essentially a direct line to 'Keep It Subtle' mixed with a photo from Miles that is actually the line to the right of this. So, is this the name and grade for the direct finish to 'Keep It Subtle' or is it for the line that Miles is on in the photo?

If it's for the latter, then the description needs... more >>

Comments: Honestly I don't remember how I did it since it's been so long, but I kind of remember starting it a little right of the prow and maybe using the hold you're describing.

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 >>
