Comments: An interesting tidbit about this area is that we actually took JS up here when he was establishing the V-scale, and he climbed a number of the problems and confirmed their ratings. Trivial, I know, but it helped to establish ratings for several more Lake Mary area boulder problems.

Comments: Adam's right about the grade. Originally called Dead Ringer (thou Scimitar sounds fine, since thats what it was renamed in the DK guide), it was done as a static problem w/ a small cheat stone.

Comments: I loved bouldering out here in the late nineties. Not too many folks around, just a crew from Flag and some local kids from Winslow who thought we were weird, but they did show us the sickest cliff jumps. The fishermen thought we were all nuts. I Had my truck locked in at Mchood once, and had to hitchhike into town to grab some dinner and a cheap motel for the night. The gates get locked sometime around sunset.

Comments: I agree with Jeff, and cheers to JJ for compiling, sorting through, and condensing all the (sometimes conflicting) info on this area. Not only have you established some great-looking problems up there, but you've done an excellent job of researching and documenting the climbing history of this special place. Thanks, David

Comments: Yeah, that crack is pretty cool for an area relatively void of splitters. Good job on that highball, I checked that thing out, but...that might be all you! I'll have to give it another look.

Comments: Well done, sir! I always thought that third problem to be a solid V3 slab climb. The whole face is great for practicing your foot work, and your 'falling off of slabs' technique.

Comments: We used to climb this boulder back in the day, called it Turtle Head. Never saw anyone get the "project", but there are some really good problems on it's south, east, and north sides including Greased Lightning and The Miser. Strangely, it never made it into any of the guide books.
