grumbles of invalid w/ the heel... to each their own

the heel is not invalid, it's just a different problem. to do "loadies zen" which is a complete eliminate the heel is off and its a 6 or 7 depending on your height for the forced jump. if you use all the holds you can call it whatever you want like "hey i did this awesome rock climb and used all the holds!", just do't call it "loadies zen" or you may get issued a ticket by the woods police.

Unfortunately, Taylor, it's the nature of bouldering at Lincoln Woods. The rock is so climbable that a lot of problems end up having rules to keep them at a certain difficulty. There's nothing wrong at all with climbing any piece of rock however you want to climb it but some of the "classics" do have specific rules from back in the day...

I believe that's the nature of bouldering a lot of places Joe, that's not what I was getting at , but thanks for the input. I get that the heel is not on, I didn't when I put the photo up...
