Comments: The sit start avoiding the jugs and using the crimps makes the line.

Comments: Highball is a perception. And if your vision is this skewed, in the pics with me in the red shirt, I must be really short...but I'm not, I'm 6 foot tall, with a +6 ape index.

Comments: Sounds like a cocky FA artist got a bit mad that someone flashed it...that being me. Too bad mature folks like LDY and myself don't flip when people flash their lines. I don't remember LDY downgrading Mono Pocket Rocket when I flashed that too. Why don't you go over to the arena and get your REAL crank on...hope your DD mentality is ready, Caleb.

Comments: Nice photogenic line, from beneath the cave. Scope the dyno hold before committing. The correct hold is not the obvious one.

Comments: When sent, this will be approximately V7/8, as an estimate. The patina is really friable and needs cleaning...otherwise plan on falling a lot and splitting tips. If the weather holds, I plan on cleaning/sending it. A nice divergence from the Delusions of Grandeur (highly recommended).

Comments: Not an FA...The Silverbells have been an outdoor gym for years. I am not claiming an FA and did this in 2005.

Comments: Probably a stiff 6 or a 7- without the heel/toe cam in the hueco, by sticking to the small edges for feet and just going straight from left in the hueco and right hand on the sloping edge. Makes the route feel more pure and sustained.

Comments: The 2nd bolt and most of the SMC hangers spin, which makes stick clipping difficult. The glue in bolts are solid. A really fun route in general.

Comments: This actually does not use a (real) pocket. Start with left hand on sloping edge, with or without thumb-catch, and right on sloper/block. Fire up right hand to sloping two-finger sloper/pocket? (or intermediate to one of two small pockets, before the sloper/pocket). Then definitely use the small pocket/sloper with thumb catch. Move left hand to flat jug-edge and then set your feet and throw to the side-pull in the middle of the face and then fire for the lip and Texas mantle. See picture.

Comments: Tried a re-send today, as my first of the day. Got shut down going to the lip. A spotter would have egged me on. The tumble is to die for...and it's sandbagged.

Comments: Just about on-par with Cytogrinder as a V8. Powerful moves with a nice Texas Mantle exit.

Comments: The top was a bit sketchy, even if I had a spotter. But usually when I am back home visiting, I end up bouldering by myself. So, I ended up stacking my smaller Mad Rock to level the ground under my huge MR. Once I stuck the end, I was in no way going to let go, then bounce and tumble:) Nice Line!

Comments: A little contrived. Not worth the effort, unless you have already done the main problem.

Comments: Another great line and almost a flash. The sequence is fairly straight forward. Two pads(slightly stacked) offset the landing nicely.

Comments: I have added a pic of the V7 start crimps, for any clarification needed. This is a great problem, any way you look at it.
