Comments: Howdy mday - just updated things a bit. At the moment, I am pretty close on a number of the harder projects on this boulder. If you are in the area, and would like to come check it out, just shoot me a PM!

Comments: Congrats on the FA! Great job - I will change the grade to what you suggested (as mine was only a guess as to what it might be once completed). What beta did you use? Got a name yet? Once again, awesome!

Comments: To you I say don't judge until you have seen it for yourself. Boulders like this certainly aren't a dime a dozen. I've seen some of the best bouldering areas in the U.S. (Joe's Valley, RMNP, Evans, etc.) and I will say this is the quality of boulder you would expect to find at one of these areas. I don't believe I am trying to represent this as a destination, however. It is just a respectable piece of rock located in a place where there isn't very much climbing.

Comments: This climb is much harder than V6 IMO. Consensus has placed it more in the V9 range I believe. I've climbed on it recently and it certainly isn't V6 or V7 or even V8 at this point. Breakage? Who knows. Cool climb though.

Comments: Today (4/8/08), some buddies and I cleaned up the landing zone between the Cube and Pungase boulders. The increase in space under the latter now allows for a long, cool, and difficult link-up of pungase into center route. This project is listed on the 'Main Boulder' page. The Valley has a new best problem IMO. Get to it...

Comments: I think Stained Glass starts on two shallow, slanted crimps at head/chest level. The low start from the jug is a different problem, but feels only slightly harder (still V10).

Comments: Given V8 but felt like soft V7 to me. Still - rad rad rad!

Comments: Disco Diva starts in the thread (hueco), not below it. Felt like hard V8 to me, but I went righthanded to the jug on the send just before realizing that going up left is significantly easier.
