Comments: No. It's the right boulder, but Sunny Beach is on the opposite side. This is a variation of the warmup arete. Not sure of the name/grade.

Comments: Dynonometer is to the left of the red line. It goes straight up, directly behind the little spruce tree in the picture. It used to start matched on what now is a scar to the right of the little tree. From there, there was a hard move left to the little chalked edge that you can see above the left branch of the spruce. You then went straight up on miserable crimps and slopers to top out. After the start hold broke, I started it with the right hand on the remaining slopey edge and left on the chal... more >>

Comments: Thanks for the kind words, Cawasaki! I'm glad the route has served as a source of inspiration for you. I felt the same way :-) Lee's new variation sounds awesome. Maybe some day I'll be in a position to give it a go...

Comments: Wow. Nice job, Lee. I gave it some goes one afternoon (a loooong time ago) and couldn't figure it out. The bottom was brick hard!

Comments: This problem has been around for a while, but I'm not sure who got the FA. I think I did it like 16-18 years ago?? God, I'm old...

Comments: On my old topo, I had the slab to the right listed as the "scab project". There was a sketchy, thin, scab-looking flake near the top blank section. I could never get myself to really pull on it. Maybe it's gone now...

Comments: Thanks for the link Brent. That was cool! Too bad they got the name of the 2nd route wrong... It actually looks like he climbs a hybrid of Derecho and Deluge. I'm not sure how Chris ended up doing Derecho, so that could be the way I guess. Very cool regardless.
