"Geir on Drugs" on Bouldering 101


Big holds to small holds and a tricky sequence on slightly overhanging rock.


About 50 feet right of where the trail meets the wall. Look for a shallow 5ft. tall orange scoop just above the dark band of rock. A crystal band angling right from the top of the scoop is the best clue.

Hard and bouldery. A letter grade or two harder than Monster Buck, but not quite as sustained. Concrats to Eric R, Andy B, and Brent S, who all sent this climb on a Friday sending spree.
Great thanks to Geir for working out the beta for us at the crux.

this climb is very fun to figure out. even with the beta worked out the climbing is stiff and requires some endurance to get through. the ending is great!

The third bolt is sketchy and could result in a ground fall without an attentive belayer. The bolting is fine; just the nature of the climb.

We found out that with a good belayer, you can take a fall while trying to clip the third bolt, launch your belayer of the ground, and still not deck. Cliff thanks for the awesome catch today.
