Description 

To the right of Movin Like Bernie, Feelin The Breeze, etc is a cool looking triangular boulder. Sit start with hands matched on a good hold and make a cool bump up and right if I recall correctly. There is another problem that we established, but my memory is hazy as to what it was.

FA Story:

B. Hatchett and I were out at the Peavine Pebbles wandering about and after doing the previous problem that was a fun finger crack on this on a very detached flake. BH and I both noticed that the flake was flexing in a very dangerous way. After some caveman work, we cleaned the flake (probably weighed ~50 lbs, enough to cause serious injury if it fell on you) and got the FA of both this and a problem that goes out and left, sharing the start for Paleolithic Prowess.

Location 

South of Feelin The Breeze near an impressive saucer roof which likely houses a hard problem or two.

Subsequent edit:

The aforementioned roof is Chudo and Chudo Direct

Protection 

Pad.

Yep.

even though they are not listed its likely this has been climbed a bunch

As mentioned in the OP of this route (perhaps the date of this should have been noted, which if memory serves correct was Fall 2011), the rhino detached flake to this thing was taken off with minimal effort after the dangerous flexing. Prior to cleaning the aforementioned flake, this problem was a finger crack/layback off of a finger crack. Also mentioned in the OP, the FA party cleaned this flake due to the heinous flexing nature of the flake/chunk and the fact that it posed a serious safety concern to subsequent parties. I know that the problem prior to the cleaning of the flake had been climbed, however, a noted increase of flex to the flake had been noticed over time and thus it was cleaned and a new pair of problems born.

The saucer-looking roof mentioned in the OP apparently was climbed and given the name Chudo as well as Chudo Direct.

I hope that clarifies my post for you, sulli. If further clarification is necessary, I will gladly illuminate more. I no longer live in Northern Nevada so snapping a pic when I come to town isn't at the top of my to-do list, but maybe if I visit in winter and the skiing is bad I will snap a pic for you ;-)

uhhh... Ok, i cant tell whether your trying to be sarcastic or serious... either way, I didnt mean to create stress... And im certainly not claiming FA for this, when I say most of the stuff out here has been climbed, I mean by people lonnng ago... before homes were up here, especially this section...

So, No, no "further illumination" is necessary... But some positive conversation is always welcome... this area doesnt see a ton of action, so its cool to see others who are down to get out there and send, clean stuff up, scope out potential new lines... there are some to be had if ones gets creative....

Im still not sure what problem your talking about, the Rhino flexing flake? Im down to climb sometime... I know a few other spots too. Cheers :) //SS
