On Gimma my 40 sucka, one of my favorite problems ...


Gimme My Forty Sucka is the obvious crack that ascends the East face of the Hidden Boulder. It follows a slightly diagonal seam that starts about 6 feet off the ground and climbs through good lockers and edges with good feet if you spend the time to look for them. The rock is some of the most solid around so not much to worry about there but it's still a good way to scare yourself.


A couple stacked pads and a spotter would be wise... Fortunately the landing is nice and flat, but it can look a long way off from up top.

There's an easy wallk off the back once you're up top.

OK last comments on the Nut Tree Boulders since there doesn't really seem to be any interest in getting the info right, there are several other problems besides "Gimmie My Forta Sucka". Straight shooter goes straight up vert to the crack apex where "40" comes in from the right. There is also an arete to the right that has been done, as well as some easier stuff to the right.

V1, not R. It's a little highball, but pretty reasonable all in all and is adequately protected with pads and spotter.

I'd say its not an OZ over .10d, which is VO in my book. The sit start is barely V1 (.11a/b) but only because you have to pull out so hard to get your ass off the ground. Just my opinion.
