BETA PHOTO: The Detour tackles the bulging prow in the center ...


Do the first few moves of Arboretum, but instead of traversing the upper crimp rail to the left, head straight up once making the move to the rail. Also, the move to the rail takes you to the crimp/pinch up and to the right, whereas on arboretum it takes you to the crimp up and left behind your head.
Grovel through sloper hell to top out.


Jacked and Tan Boulder. Start as for Arboretum

Thomas sent this today. He was thinking between V8-9, though is waiting for consensus. I didn't send, but it felt hard to me. The sequence surmounting the bulge is pretty rad though, and culminates with a slam dunk style move to a sloper.

The holds are all cleaned and chalked though, and awaiting repeats.

I remember asking you this earlier, Tim, but just to be sure: Thomas did this from the stand, right? I would imagine adding that extra little V4-ish sit would make this even more gnarly.

Yep, from the stand. Still open from the sit. This one is certainly one of the tougher exit options for this boulder.

Tom also did a version starting on the left side and traversed right into Detour.

Thinking maybe 8 for the stand, 8+ sit, and 9 for the right-start option (Deviant?). Still need more consensus though (I haven't finished yet; need my skin to grow back faster, ha!).

Sent this from the start of Thomas Aquinas and thought it was a solid 9.
