  • "Left Huge" 

    This is located uphill about 30-50 yards east of "The Game". Nested in the shade, this short but powerful line is worth it. Start is the same as for "Huge, V11?" but moves left after the lip toss on good holds with one last sick move to gain the better holds on the slab above. Cool line!! Move like V8 if you dig big toss moves on mostly good holds.

    No, this is "Hug Left" as described above. Hard V8 feels about right.

    I was referring to this "Start is the same as for "Huge, V11?""

    Okay, it seems like there is confusion here...and the comments really don't seem to clarify this. Can someone who knows this problem well please clearly indicate what the name of the problem is? Thanks!

    The location description is great, but any way we could get a picture up? A picture is worth a thousand words.

    The Huge Left Hug, V8/11.

    I am curious, I am from Amarillo Texas and did some bouldering in the Cob Rock area. There are a lot of chalked boulders and not very many problem descriptions here in MP. I had a great time on the few boulders I tried (limited to sleeping pads), but I'ed like to know if you guys know what these boulders are or where I might find out?

    Thanks, this is a linked picture:

    Watched a few vids of this after completing yesterday. Looks like most people start higher on the arete than I. Starting left a bit lower adds an extra bump move before throwing to the lip (for a bit more of that "Hug" action). So, could be a bit of variance on the grade depending on choice of start, but hard 8 to easy 9 seems the right range.
