Comments: I think Walters is right. First Blood doesn't have this much tan rock.

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.

Comments: The blue line is Eric's Flashy Oddity V6. First sent by Eric Sutton. It actually goes straight up (not to the right as the line depicts). The yellow route is a line that I thought we did first in 1995 called Five Alive (there was five of us there climbing) V4. Red line is a really good easy warm-up, V0+.

Comments: The red line is a problem that Dave and I put in called Heavy Breathing V5-6. I don't remember who did it first. Starts really low with some powerful moves on slopers.

Comments: The original sit start makes it a 5-move wonder... Start low with two bad crimps, make a hard move to a right hand gaston in the seam feature, left hand intermediate crimp, hard move up with the left hand (to the hold I have in the picture), right hand intermediate (the one in the picture), jump to the lip with your right, and then belly flop over. Packs a punch in its 8 feet.

Comments: You got me on this one. I don't really know all the problems the Colorado crew put in... Is there really another problem named Jumper? I put in Jumper (V4) on the backside by Jaba...

Comments: Hey Mike. Yes, Nunan is the sit-start problem to the left of Greasy. I remember it having some sharp little crystals. V3 - I think I got the FA.
On the opposite side of the boulder, Dave put up another V3 called Looming. It has a jump start to good edge and then goes up and right, escaping to the right side slab.
