Start in the undercling and crimp about 3 feet up. Slap to some slopers around the lip and friction your way up and over the bulge.
Great little problem, and the sit start will bump it up a notch for sure.

Originally done from the sit, and goes at about v5


The very left of the boulder. Obvious starting holds, and you'll be able to identify the good slopers to slap to by the lack of black patina on the rock.


Just a pad will be fine

This is The Spider, and was originally done from the sit. Starts on the low edges and moves to slopers. Rings in around V5 when done this way.

I popped back out to Price Is Right boulders today, and I just want to say this problem is not a V2. The FA gave this a V7. That might be a bit higher than the consensus, but I would say that's a much fairer representation than V2.

After getting on it myself, I would say this problem is significantly more difficult--at least for someone over 6 feet--than Calling Green Peace, which is supposedly a V6.

if you read the description of the problem, I clearly state that the v2 goes from the higher set of holds, and not the original start, which grk10vq states is about v5(and I agree)

If you try from the start in the description, it's around v2-3

My bad for not having any beta on the area, I just went there, and saw that no one had posted any information on MP, so I added the routes on here.

good job on the sit start tho
