Comments: Hey Mike, this was the first problem I ever put up at the Voo, and technically The Acres would be a sub area of The Citadel and you know the Voo is technical...: ) As far as grade, that is a hard one many folks start this from a pad, I would say that it felt V5/6 for me from the ground with no pad, but then again if you are a total campus mang I am sure you can do laps up and down this, rate it how you see fit.

Comments: Indeed Molony, you are correct thanks for clearing that up, the Good Vibrations line added was the right thinner line on the boulder traverses left to same finish. The left line was known to be climbed years ago and was not renamed by Myself or Trevor but in the publishing of the guide.

Davin's awesome knowledge of the area was overshadowed by editing decisions NOT ON HIS PART thus the mass of errors in the guide.

Comments: Social candy is to the left of the pictured line about 5 feet. The line pictured is a low start to B2 Bomber that is around v4/5. Social candy is out of the picture frame to the left pretty much equal in the middle of shot down in flames and b2 bomber. Just wanted to clear that up.
My beta is from the Bounce and Swim guide, Chris Eklund the FA artist

Comments: Consensus over the last season has been V8, a few new good edges have materialized over the lip as well as some better feet from some overzealous "brushing". Please avoid using anthing but soft nylon brushes on established problems at Vedauwoo as the rock is pretty crystaly and tends to be quite easy to modify if you use coarse metal brushes or pound on the rock with the tip of a brush.

Comments: The name is a pun of the super classic Boulder Problem "From Minnesota with Love" at the Body Dump Area on 700E.
