Comments: Yeah this is one of my favorite at the Yard (or anywhere I've been for that matter)! Originally I did the left top out, but went back for the direct. I enjoy and do both, whatever feels natural at the moment, although I think the left is actually a bit scarier as if you come off there you're more sideways (and have potential to fall into the bush). Just don't come off and you're fine!

Comments: Actually, you gave it two stars Bob. Ha, just nitpicking. ;)

This thing is still rejecting me. Can't get that high heel beta to work (yet), but I've been trying and getting close to the 'big move' way. Rain all this week, so pure training right now, but once things dry up I'm attacking this and Break On Through.

I'll edit this worthless comment once I do some more work.
Edit: Getting... Closer.....
Edit2: Finally got this thing, took me forever... Felt great once it goes though. Good fun+

Comments: Bob: on that recent SB bouldering video I saw you say something about She Had Nothing To Do With It going up the left of the arete? Just curious how to go about it as the only way I've ever been able to climb it was similar to how it was done in the video (low start, move to the leftmost jugs on face, then throw for the slanted pocket out left to top out).

ps Thanks for the sweet old school pics!

Comments: I think this was the first problem I worked at Lizards Mouth. Great fun, and a good challenge if it's near your max.

Comments: I remember wandering around the Mouth O11 in hand (at night, of course) being pretty confused looking for this thing. Oh, it's under that rock! Haha, awesome line (sweet pockets)! Didn't get to send as it's a bit scary with 1 pad and no spotters, but for sure I'll have to don some threads a la Edwards and get myself a true send in style.

Comments: Hm, any updates on this one?

Seems like it would be (almost) over once you match that "jug protrusion" thing, but getting your feet over the bulge is devious. I can see some nipples etc have broken off just above the jug, did any of these make it easier? Sure feels hard now (harder than King Dinsosaur/Soot Patrol) but maybe I'm just a bad beta punter.

Edit: More moisture outside means more lurking... Found this on Bobs king-dino site:

Comments: One of the best on all the mountain! Still no send for me yet, but I'm working it, getting close... Rad compression moves lead to an awesome giant crux move with a victory slab as the cherry on top.

Nice work putting this up. A neo-Pine Mountain test piece for sure!

Comments: Ah, after finally sending this a time or two more, along with some of the other V7s in the area (Soot Patrol and Grotesque Old Woman) I feel I have a better sense of the grades, and it all seems pretty spot on. Grotesque feels hard all the times you don't hit, but when it connects it's not so bad, so a hard 7 seems right. Soot is maybe on the easier side of 7, though awkward. And Outlaw definitely feels different depending on the temps/conditions.

All in all, I'm back at my same old sentiment; ... more >>

Comments: This video shows the most ridiculous problem in Skofield Park; a la 'Sit There and Take it Like a Man' style. Crux is keeping your butt off the ground, but it's consistently pumpy throughout. Also on the boulder is the stand start w/ left & right exit, and the traverse to scoop and mantle from the left side of the boulder (punt).

On the split boulder just up from the Cracked boulder:

Comments: Ah, finally got this bad boy today with a nice cool evening breeze. Out to the slope, and then up through the grainy top-out. Feels real hard all the times you miss, but then when it finally connects it doesn't feel too bad. Good stuff!

Comments: Finally got on this one today. Got all the way to where I was standing on the pink pebble (where the left hand is in the picture) and attempting to hand-foot match in the shallow dish. Had to back off as it was in direct sunlight and wasn't quite feeling secure. Bob's description, "Delightfully frightening" is spot on! Good fun, and for sure on the list to finish next time. The bottom movement is fun, and that sloping-pinch-dish you grab with the right is now one of my favorite holds ever.

Comments: Got on these today in the hot sun. Fun problems that are a good addition to the warm-up circuit, especially the ones on the right side. Cool features and surprisingly solid rock (on the right). Thanks for doin' work!

Comments: I hiked up there from the frontside sometime last year, but was confronted by a large swarm of bees as the mouth of the cave. Seems as if they're gone and I can finally see what's in there!

Oh and awesome photos. Good stuff on your site, and cool to see quality pics of Pine Mtn, etc.

Comments: There's a vid floating around of that fella, he traverses from the left into Dancing outlaw, but once on the slope finishes straight up.. Cool!


Ah, there it is: Purgatory (V9+) @ 2min 50 sec

Comments: To toss a little extra fuel on the fire, I was ultra stoked to send this for my first time on a particularly chilly Mothers Day (shoutout Mom!), and before this I hadn't 'truly' (by boulder purist standards) sent V7. Then again, I've put drastically more effort into Outlaw than say, Mister Witty or Grotesque (done all the moves), and have seen countless videos/betas worked. The aesthetics, movement and style of Outlaw draw you in and beckon to be climbed. Using Jeff's suggestion of style ratings... more >>

Rock Climbing Photo: Good slopers at the Brickyard
Good slopers at the Brickyard


Hey, was just wondering if anyone had any info on this problem here. I think it's on the Great Shark Hunt (40' traverse) boulder, but the only mentions of problems here in the guidebook (O11) were Lets Troll! and Chummin', each of which descriptions don't seem to match this problem. I was starting on the big lip, moving up passed crimps to the sloping rail and then using some balancy moves passed slopes to gain the top. Just curious as I haven't seen anyone else work it, but it ... more >>
