I was climbing with a friend named Justin yesterday, and he told me he sent this problem, not sure if he established it or not. Left to right traverse to straight up. I think he said like V5.

As far as I know Justin did establish this problem. He and I called it V4 to V4+, Dead Marmot is the name. Try right to left and up through the slight crack for a fun variation of the traverse crux.

Hu.... there is another problem called dead marmot in the elict area put up by a Justin H. My friend Justin's last name is cockrin (not sure of the spelling, from Illinois hangs with J. Kehl) that put up this line(on a different rock then the other dead marmot put up by the other justin) I'm slightly confused.

Hey Jason,
The block shown in this picture is called "The Sausage Gome Block." All the lines done on this block were done about 10-12 years ago by the Huasmann brothers and Scott Sillis. I gave another problem in the "Elicit Area" the name "Dead Marmot" by mistake. I'm going to correct the info very soon. Thanks for your input. Hope that helps with the confusion.

This is a boulder I haven't ever climbed. It's back west of The Shreader, on the way out to the Energy Crag. There was definitely some chalk on it yesterday though. Post it up if you know what it is.
