Comments: Have you guys been over to the Quarry Road area or Slanted Boulder? Some of the best stuff in the fells is at those places. Highway Cliff, Theta, Panther Cave/Red Cross Path area. Lots of good stuff.

Comments: Is the overhang in the left of the photo climable? Looks like a sweet lip traverse.

Comments: Still a project. Lead with one good gear placement protecting the long crux moves. Top out the crux section and upper slab unprotected unless you can dig out a crack and force a nut in. Top rope efforts so far. Could be 5.12. Feels like V5.

Update: Crack is pretty clean now.

Comments: The other boulders and cliffs are worth a visit as well! This particular boulder has a lot of great lines around it!

Comments: Great route. The hard parts have great protection. Probably not a great climb for someone not comfortable with runout, easy, but enjoyable climbing with short well protected exposed cruxes. The 3rd pitch is varied and exposed with bomber gear, but conserve it since you'll be feeling the drag.. The crux 2nd pitch has a semi bomber nut right where you need it. Climb smart and this is wonderful!

Comments: I'm confused. Why not just add these areas to the appropriate state and let progress happen on its own? This idea of having an "in progress" seems silly. Just about every area in here is already "in progress".

Comments: Why not just add the area??? If it doesn't exist add it! What you're doing here seems strange.

Comments: The first half can safely be climbed as a boulder problem. If you are comfortable with overlapping hand cracks, this could be a highball as well.

Went bouldering at Canada Cliffs and met John Eagleson who gave me a tour of the bouldering. Really great problems there including one he called "The Prow". I'll post it up here. Someone should talk to him about FAs and names of problems. He knows the deal. Great resource.

Comments: Got on this today, and it is a great route to take some falls on. Bomber nut placements right where you want them to be. Fun to work. I didn't get it, so it will have to wait until next time.

Comments: That start hold is sharp! I could only give it a couple of tries before I decided to save my fingers for other things!
