David Bloom onsighting Center Pinche for the secon...


This is a truly remarkable line, and stands out in the list of classic crack boulder problems in the greater Flagstaff Area. The clever name is a combination of a piece of the FAist's past, and a reference to the classic Center Piece at Buffalo Park. Perfect!

Pockets, edges, and a thin hands crack that splits a 45 degree wall... If you like this sort of thing, it is stunning.

Difficulty will vary quite a bit depending on hand size, but for the majority of suitors it will probably feel somewhere around the V5 or solid 5.12.

Get after it!


If you have found it, you will know.


Lots of pads and friends.
