This is the largest boulder in the cliffband and contains some high quality climbs generally characterized by low cruxes and thrilling high topouts.

The name comes from my recent purchase of Ocean's 11 (which is not too easy to come by). After topping out the Kiser Problem following a toprope cleaning and "inspection" I got a little slap to the face when Bob mentions that these methods are not really cool in the O'11 intro. After reading this I laughed and decided that all other problems I did out here would be cleaned ground up without prior toprope "inspection".

This boulder is the proud (albeit somewhat dirty) product of that ethic. Hope you appreciate it Bob...

So named because you probably need a little bit of the Hydrogen Psychosis to actually want to do this problem, the H.P. project is one of the more painful problems I've come across in SB (the only other problem that compares is the Static Eliminator sit but this guy feels much worse). Hydrogen Psychosis glory is guarded by two of the thinnest crimps in S.B. that'll eat through your fingers so fast you'll think you were out at the Buttermilks. Only time will tell if those crimps will survive but ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
