Tcamillieri on Whispers of Wisdom, V10.

  • Description 

    One of the very best boulder problems in all of Colorado. Starts on two opposed crimps and makes a desperate move to a good, left-facing edge. Continue through a series of compression, slappy moves. There are three hard moves on this boulder problem. The first is the first move. The second is a long reach on a blocky undercling to a decent, incut crimp. The third is at the lip moving from a terrible sloper to a decent full pad crimp. Lots of people fall turning the lip... and there's a 25 foot slab (hint: trend [not traverse] right). Originally rated V11, this problem has since been down rated. 10.7 in my opinion.


    When facing The Kind, turn around. You will see a roofy problem (V6). Whispers of Wisdom is located on the opposite side of the boulder. Walk around left, it is the overhanging (45 degrees), compression problem. Absolutely Classic.


    Pads. When the snow melts spotters who like you.

    So you pull the lip and have a bunch of tall slab to do? Whats that clock in at, the slab section? Is it over by then, or is it still not a gimme?

    The slab clocks in around 5.4, and there is a really good stance halfway up that you can relax and bask in the glory. However, that is after your get stood up on the lip. The lip section and mantle clocks in at about V4 but has seen a lot of falls from strong climbers. I highly recommend the top out.
