Comments: "Taking a wreck 23 makes us route deafly not a PG-13 route. It was intended to be a mixture route and therefore have very adequate protection."

Mr. McNeil your amusing post seems to be riddled with typos and I'm certainly no spelling nazi. Are you saying that bringing a small rack is recommended? I think I placed a nut on the first pitch to alleviate a runout and also sling a nice horn in one place. Good route, thanks for putting it up.

Comments: Note you can no longer drive this far down. This is still the place you start hiking down though.

Comments: I've climbed this line probably 25-30 times over the past 8 years, including a number of variations. A neat one climbed yesterday was starting on the sugary bulge way below the boulder you usually would stand on to start it and climb directly into the normal start. It's quite something to already be a bit pumped at the usual starting holds.

Regarding the intended line, I will say that I usually climb with the large undercling to the left near the 3rd bolt. It flows nicely and has great mov... more >>

Comments: Arguably a more natural line on this boulder. Either way it's nice to have another good moderate problem in this area.

Comments: 4 pads adequately cover the landing area and it's nice to have 2 spotters. Which hand you go to the jug with will determine where you will land if you miss, so plan accordingly.

Comments: Well, despite my comment above from a few years ago, I saw a few people totally slide down the tree for the entire length of the problem this past weekend after blowing the exit moves. Yowch.

Comments: I removed Cannons Sit as sort of requested above. Let me know if you all want any other changes to the Cannons boulder at this time.

Hope everyone is coming to the DL comp and afterparty tomorrow. Should be a bitchin time. Maybe we all can have a group hug. Or, I can buy everyone a beer from the free keg.

Comments: Has anyone actually ever done the problem as described?

Meaning: from the huge jug at mid-height (what everyone is hanging off of in all the photos above) and dynoing to anywhere along the top of the bluff?

I tried again last fall on a seemingly very low gravity day and just ended up with a bruised heel for my efforts.

Comments: Nice and clean for the comp. We had a half dozen on a send train yesterday after scrubbing. Hard but very satisfying V4, IMO.

Neighbors must have finally complained loudly enough.
