Broken Rubber


Starting low on the right side of the boulder, make a long move out left to the undercling, find a way to match, and make a stellar move out left to crimps. Finishes up and right on easier ground.


Back side (north side?) of the main lower boulder.

V6 ?? Wow. When I did it back in the mid-80s it was rated B1 (FA Bob Murray). The V-scale was just coming on at that time, but B1 equated to V4/5 back then.

jbak, what is the "proper" ending for this problem? Pulling left into the crack is awkward, but straight up is cryptic. What would BM do?

Haha... after 30+ years I am certainly not sure of any beta. Left to crack sounds correct, but I'd have to look at it again to be sure. Been way too long.
