Nice huecos


Very obvious problem that climbs the plates and big huecos on the trail side of the boulder.

Crux is getting off the ground and comfortable enough to chuck for the top. Though the book has this as a V4, I have to disagree. More like V1 if you are tall enough to make the toss.

Fun problem. Large holds the entire way. A fun onsight. Feels like V2 to me. But Large moves on good holds is right up my ally.

V1 and I'm 5'7" There is no way this thing is V4 no matter which way you do it.

Yup, I am a relative beginner and was able to do it. Really fun though - more like a V1+ or V2

No V4. Fry's book rates it a 5.9. My feeling has always been +5.9.

This is such a great bouldering problem. This is such a fun problem. every move on this thing feels like how bouldering should feel. Definitely not a V4 though. it's a V2

If you go left it feels like a V2.
