Comments: I've even heard my stingier south eastern buddies call this V3. Good old southeastern sandbaggery.

Comments: This one is cryptic and tough to read, but as far as I can tell you start on a right hand 2 finger pocket, and a positive left hand crimp (which some folks might use as a right hand for Booze Pig). From these start holds there's a substantial distance to what appear to be positive crimps which look like they set you up to gain the 3" pocket mentioned in the description. The crux involves spanning the gap between the start holds and the positive crimps, with your best options involving several sl... more >>

Comments: Word. The first boulder problem is manageable, but it's pretty funky between the 2nd and 3rd bolt.

Comments: A high left perch on a thin foot, and a left knee scum-bar on the starting hold below your left hand (<--HaHa, something like that) makes that irritating (or awesome?) first move substantially easier. A cruel twist of fate makes this sequence much harder for tall folks, but since their lanky appendages tend to help them more often than not I don't feel too bad. One of the best problems in NAZ!

Comments: This might be the best problem at the Anvils. A fun factor of 11 (10 point scale). Check out the video

Comments: I've never been to Boulder and have no opinion of this climb other than it looks like fun in the photos. I'm just impressed that this conversation is almost a decade old!

Comments: I prefer this line to "Donkey Punch". In my opinion, this is the best 6 in Flagstaff, but it doesn't see much action.

Comments: This problem is great, but I wish it had 8 more ft. of sustained climbing. Really fun movement that ends a little too quickly.

Comments: Does anyone start using the two holds you can grab from the ground without a pad stack? Seems like it would make it a bit tougher. I'll see how it goes and report back.

Comments: This is an awesome problem that no one talks about. It took me about 60+ times to finally figure out that I needed to move my right foot up about 3 inches. A great problem to work at the end of the day, because it's really easy on the hands.

I've never tried the right variation to the arete but I'll definitely give it a try next time I head out there.
