BETA PHOTO: Super fun problem with a burly start.


Wrestle your way up to a heel hook and some miserable crimps at the front edge of the top. Work up and around to the right and reach the next set of crimps.


This is the main problem on the Paint Can boulder. The Paint Can boulder is marked by a sign. It is to the left from the main entrance.

Justin can step right up on that low rail, shorter guys like me have to get a little help(two pads). I've heard that is where the name came from, correct me if I'm wrong, but the FA (Bob Cormany?) had to use a paint can to get things started. With or with out some help off the ground this is a bad mo fro.

Sit down start=v9, but i wouldn't know cause i can't do it.
