Luke Childers going for the lip toss on "CJMD...


A very nice boulder problem, that is easier for the compact climbers. Start at the horizontal edge at the beginning of Tendonitis Traverse. Go up 12" with the left hand to Tendonitis, then up right hand to a hold with a little "roof" over it. Figure out really gnarly feet, throw to the sloping lip of the roof out left (there is a vertical feature in the middle of this hold), and up to the apex with the right hand. Classic.


Start on the 10" x 2" flat horizontal at the beginning of Tendonitis.

Yea this line is called CJMD. It's one of the better independent lines in the Black Hole area. Fun line with the worst sloper's in town!!

V8+...I am working on starting it from the Air Jordan start. Brick hard, and certainly will bump up the grade some. Just have to get used to rolling. Do you know if the CJ stands for Chris Jones?

CJMD stands for Chris (Hill) and Jimmy (Surette) Makin' Ducats...which was a joke, since they were painting houses at the time....

Thanks, George. I have never met either...but know both are monster climbers! Heard their names a lot in the eighties. Seems like most of the climbers talk to have a sent/never sent issue with this one...( a lot of other problems are that way, too).

What a fun problem! Some good tight static moves into some explosive dynamic movement - sweet!
