Comments: That's always been my understanding. Bryce or someone else who knows the history might have a better idea.

Comments: Not sure what I was intending when I wrote this. It's not accurate as written. I'll tweak it.

BTW, I've always started with a lower right undercling, moved into the higher one, dropped left hand into the horrible sharp hold and then hucked for the lip. Or rather, failed to huck for the lip.

Comments: IDK, Bryce. I think I'd call the original method an eliminate if much easier beta is available. Just because the first folks to try it didn't find the beta doesn't mean it's not there.

Comments: If you can, bring your knee up inside your right hand. Made a huge difference for me. Oh, and go all the way to the jug. The undercling is kind of a sucker hold.

Comments: Entirely possible, Christian. A friend did it and thought it was new and/or unnamed. When I did it, it came together pretty easily despite the terrible, terrible holds for your right hand. Oh, and I definitely didn't do any dynoing as in the description for the V8 variation.

Comments: The beta in that vid is for CRAZY STRONG MOFOS! Normal people do at least two moves before hitting the high right crimp he grabs first.

Comments: I think this is actually to the left of Old People With Soul. It climbs the face left of the offset offwidth feature.

Also, I did a pretty obvious sit start from a crimp on the right side of the arete down low and a left hand sidepull on the face. One long move reaches the flat jugs. Might be V5. I thought the stand was more like mid-range V4.

Comments: There's a line that's basically behind the tree in this photo that goes at maybe V4 from the stand. No idea what the name is.

There's also a kinda thuggy low-ball-ish problem on the right arete seen here. Probably also about V4.

Comments: Rock quality on this line isn't great, which doesn't really distinguish it from the other lines on this side of the boulder.

Comments: there's a sit from the right side of this face that feels harder than V2/3 to me. A crouch start in the middle is more like V1/2 though.

Comments: Couple things:

1. This boulder is losing a battle with moss. The side with The Ripper on it is particularly lush.

2. I did a pair of lines not listed here:

~a: The first is an easy arete just right of the tree on the Tragedy of Dusk side of the bloc. Starts on jugs and works up right to a very easy topout. Probably V0.

~b: The second is the one I think Andy was talking about. It starts on the low part of the boulder below the slab you walk down to get off and follows the lip/arete up and ri... more >>

Comments: You cross? Damn. Hardcore. I'd recommend going right hand and then crossing to the good incut flake thing.

Comments: I get the gaston & sidepul, do some hard footwork to get my right foot up to the sharp crimp you move to the gaston from, and fire for the pocket. Then I fall.

Comments: Well worth bringing a couple long slings to reduce drag. Key bolt is the one on the first steep section at about mid-height, but there are a couple others that could be extended as well.

Comments: This would be a fantastic short route, but the first big flake creaked when I pulled on it, which I found thoroughly disconcerting. Definitely harder than Clusterphobia in my opinion, but not two letter grades.

Comments: This thing feels crazy hard to me. There's gotta be beta I was missing, because it felt solid V8 or harder. Amazing line, though.

Comments: It's a nice V4ish problem, but it's got some potential for nastiness. You definitely don't want to slip off the feet at the start and jam your self into the gap between the boulders. Plus, some of the flakes are pretty hollow. Fun climbing, though. No idea about the name.
