Dude that problem looks so good!! I can't get over how green that place is. It's looks so exotic.

This problem has also been called Godfrey Corner. E and E had another name but I forgot it. Around the corner to the right of this problem is a V-fun mantle problem that is very manageable. In fact, another highish V-fun problem recently got cleaned to the right of it making for a good warm-up area- which can be hard to find at the Garden. These Warm-ups and the problem in the photo are quickly accessed from the now illegal parking lot utilizing a short bit of Weyerhauser road. To walk this road in and start here is great, but driving in and parking may present access problems to the Garden in the future so please show discretion.

Uugghhh Octurnal is one of THE BEST boulders in The Garden. Jugs, crimps, and left-traversing heel smears to a mossy top. Glad to see it getting some mention on the "photos of the moment" section of MP. Anyone who can climb V5 in the Willamette Valley should get on the short version. The V8/9 sit start is gnar but such a beautiful line. This project still haunts my dreams but alas, it could be a long while til I'm up in OR again.
