New to bouldering but really want to top out grandma peabody boulder. How's the down climb? Are there any videos of the downclimb.
Thanks for any advice.

Negative. Go to the NW Arête and onsight down solo the 5.9 slab like a BOSS.

For full value.

Without a chalk bag in the sun after its been baking for 8 hours, legs trembling, unsure, sketched out. At least your ass looks great in those capris though bro.

I did it last week. The downclimb is a bit heady. I did the downclimb (actually a more sketchy variation) but my partner bitched out and made me free solo the rope and harness up to him. He onsights mid 11 slab and did not feel safe, but I am worse at slab and I did it without dying. Raddam6
