Route 1 == POCKET PROBLEM, low V8 (which can be seen if you go to Pocket Problem under route name)Route 2 == QUARTER PROBLEM, V3 [Start as for #1 but go one move up to the massive flat rail to your left and then go straight over the lip. Top out.]Route 2 == HALF PROBLEM, V3 [Same start as routes 1 and 2 but traverse even further left until you can reach up with your right hand to a pinch on the lip. From here grab the pinch a foot and half to the left w/ left hand and fire to the jug up to your right. Top out.]Route 3 == FULL PROBLEM, V1/2 [Same start but follow the rail all the way to its end, now reach up to your left to a big side pull. From here climb over the lip to good pockets and pinches.


Crash pads and a spotter.

Didn't know about this one until I sent the Clerk. I love overhanging problems. This boulder is both challenging and fun. Anyone know the names of the problems here? If not I got dibs :P

The Pocket Problem is probably closer to V5 or 6...I'm not sure what I was thinking when I graded some of this stuff originally. As for the names, I'm not sure what they are called. I named them something but I have no idea who did them first.
