BETA PHOTO: Hobo boulder

Description 

Was originally V10 but a small crimp broke and got better! Since, the problem hasn't seen enough ascents for everyone to agree on a grade. Start on a good right hand and medium incut crimp. Climb the overhang with side pulls, a decent crimp and a big pop to a sloping edge. Tricky top out.

Location 

Center line on the front of the boulder

Protection 

2-3 pads

Such a shame what happened to this line. Different sets of beta have the grade for this thing all over the place. Just my opinion but it feels more in line with some other v7's on the mountain. Definitely needs to community to weigh in

Totally agree Tim. I have yet to send Hobo but I threw up the grade based on what I have heard others say. Thanks for the input!
