Just right of Mavericks, climb over the boulder that you hope you won't land on. SDS on a perfect jug make long pulls to a slopey topout.


This is 2 feet right of Mavericks.


A bunch of pads, this problem is a ankle breaker, be careful.

I had checked this line out sometime in 2008 and it looked really cool. Never tried to put it together, but it looks so good I am thinking I need to head back and see about doing some sending. Man that top out looks scary!!! Nice work guys!!

Sorry to burst your bubble, this line was done by this guy Jim from Denver about 10 years ago. I remember me and Mark trying it with him that day he sent it, Jim suggested V8. I haven't been back to try it, but looks good on a cool day when I got nothing better to do. Jim called it The Shifter! He called it that because he shifted his hand real weird for the press out.

Hey Wade,
Was this guy.... Jim Hausmann per chance? Just wondering because we use to do a little bouldering in the area around 2002 or so. I will have to ask him myself you can't recall his last name. Thanks.

Cool, I didn't know any of that.... I did a bit of checking but never heard anything. The info has been changed.

Not sure what his last name is, he was around 25 years old I think? back then, does that help?
