Send train day on Dem Apples.


Sit start on two okay pinches then slap your way up good holds with odd feet and tension and a slightly scary move to an undercling-side pull at about 10 feet. Once on the left hand undercling you can get your feet up and commit to the tall slab above which has a long move to reach the lip at about 20 feet. I did this problem 8/08 and only recently went back to get the thing on video.

As for grade: it's harder (for me) than the other area problems Extension, V8; Return of the Jedi, V8; Romeo, V8; and Cool Arete, V9. But this is bouldering, so V7-V10 is the range depending on your strengths and stature.


This boulder problem faces north on the boulder that is under the Aircraft Carrier. If you are facing Romeo (V8), turn around and look down the hill and you will see Dem Apples (V8/9).


A spotter, 1 big pad, and 1 thin pad for the sit.

There is now a sizable patio under the problem. I did not terrace the landing back in '08 but was psyched to have the flat landing when I went back this summer. Thanks to who ever put the time in! Video of this problem can be found on my blog.

It was V3/4 before I broke a jog off at the crux in '08.
