BITD we also used to do this as a pure campus problem (no heel hooks) all the way to the finishing jug.

The description is a bit off. The vast majority of people just dyno to the jug ledge from the starting slab.

Fun to play with on a rainy day. Holds stay dry most of the way.

Fun problem. I love the heel hook -- it's a cool move. A tip for that move, bump your heel all the way over to where your hand is, it makes the move a bit easier. The crimps after that are fun to weight.

The myth, BITD, was that if you could do the Andrew Boulder, you could do Foops. I got the boulder problem and promptly failed on Foops that day. Did get it the next week anyway.

I love seeing rgold's historical footnotes on here. I saw this page before visiting the boulder but, when I got there, the heel hook beta was so enticing and fun, I couldn't be bothered to try campusing.
And, jumping from the slab straight to the jug? Huh, why not start at the obvious start holds (i.e. all the way right)??
I guess half the fun is figuring out the problem that YOU want to climb. Great problem however you choose to do it.
