Better Than Coffee


Make a couple of slightly awkward moves to get established above the overhang, then lay into the gorgeous, juggy crack cleaving the face. Top out easily, high off the ground. Aside from the funky start this problem is pretty darn classic. Utah Bouldering calls it V4, R&I mini guide calls it V1... you decide!


On the side of the big boulder that faces the road, climbs the left side of the face via the prominent crack.


A couple pads and a spotter.

Another cool variation on this boulder is to start on Dem Bones and climb into Better Than Coffee. This might be the original line that was rated V6 in an early guide.

Start as low as possible. Glassy feet and fun moves provide more than just the v1 stand start.
