Comments: Looks like the Sand Traverse Boulder, on the right side, that great steep line that feels like v1-2 with a slightly slopey topout.

Comments: this and anything but bland are clearly the best problems in this area. the description of this one is fairly benign, but it's actually fairly horrifying, with all the sand. super proud, awesome FA.

Comments: I thought it was pretty hard to use that crimp in the face, and that might constitute the grade, depending on what you do with your feet. It's not satisfying, but I think this one is kind of an eliminate, and if you found the v8 variation, you did the problem, and if you didn't you maybe found a slightly different line. I suspect that there is a way to climb this section of holds and make it v8, and I think you have to use that greasy crimp in the face and... more >>

Comments: Woe to the MP user that posts a boulder problem with an R rating for anything other than something that will likely result in a death fall. Also everything is easier than everyone else says!!!

Comments: Not so rad since the big crimp broke off on the face, and this is now a micro crimp.

Comments: cool twisting sit start, with long moves to good holds. and your balance is just off enough to feel uncomfortable. really great problem. kinda tough to pad really safely though. tall, and like all the other moby dick area problems, the ground slopes away pretty seriously.

Comments: Thanks for the post! I wasn't sure what this thing was when I did it, but I thought it was just amazing. Great problem

Comments: As long as everyone is afraid to be the first to say that it's 14a now (same with post-break dead souls), it will always be considered 14a in everyone's minds, but we will keep saying 13d to each other.
Jens always talked about the "brave downgrader" - it takes a lot more guts to upgrade. Cue the guy who pipes in to say "it isn't that hard":

Comments: How has nobody responded to Zoso's comment above? It's ok to steal draws off a route someone is projecting? Incorrect.

Comments: I had just flashed Grimace, and I was pretty damn happy about it. And while I was sitting on the top of it, feeling pretty good about myself, some dude was like, "Well, if you think you're such a badass, why don't you go and flash Spanky? That one's actually hard." So I went and did that.

He wasn't there to see it, so I just did a dorky little silent "haha!" fist pump at the top by myself. I might not have otherwise flashed this problem, so I just want to say, "Thank you asshole guy wherever y... more >>

Comments: Really needs a new bolt at the 2nd crux, if anyone has the motivation to do that. We would all appreciate it Im sure. Right now, it's a rusty half inch SMC. Be safe out there.

Comments: FA Todd Skinner, or FA Boone Speed? Anyone have the history on this. I know it says Todd in the AF guide, but asking around the area, people say Boone did it first. Maybe Boone is associated with it because he did FAs of half of everything else, and is climbing it in Masters of Stone?

Comments: Looks like glue-ins were added by a generous individual alongside the older bolts.

Note: some of the fixed draws look pretty manky, with worn bottom and top biners: a couple of the rope-grooved biners were just switched to the top biner!

I'm going to bring a few project draws to replace the ones that are there next time I'm out, but if you're there in the interim, take care.
