Comments: legitimate question: didn't everyone who "climbed" this boulder top it out?

Comments: No, that's not how grades work (at least not in their current form). We don't just create a bell curve for each area. If we were to do that, why stop at v12? Why not use v15? Or v20?

In the real world, there are standards and then we grade according to how difficult things are - when climbed in good conditions, with good skin, after rest days, and with good beta - compared to that standard. The standard v10 at Devil's Lake for many years has been Keymaker.

In other forums my grading has... more >>

Comments: My 2c...

I misunderstood where Dagger started. I removed it from my scorecard and added a note to my video. For the record, this is because my left hand was slightly too far up the lower arete, not because my hands were flipped. The hands flipped on the start holds is an unsustainable argument along a slippery slope. Starting on the holds the first ascentionist used is not slippery. Nor is not dabbing, etc.

I did all this because I believe that if you're going to represent that you've done... more >>

Comments: There's an obvious start that would add several hard moves into this problem. Could be the first v14 at the lake.

Comments: being a day of the year, what's about to fall off your 8a card also affects how hard the problem feels.

Comments: Sick that the cross worked for Ya. I did it that way but found myself stretched and the release feeling harder than the other ways. I figured the taller guys might crush that beta.

Comments: Time will tell. I did this in a couple tries in full sun / t-shirt weather. There are very few (if any) v9s at the lake I think I could do in comparable conditions. Felt about as hard as Mean Gurlz with my sequence. That's the background on how I formed my opinion, in case anyone was wondering.

All that being said, this thing climbs a lot better than it looks. Short approach and fun moves. People should get on it.

Comments: This is a great problem - terrific rock, obvious start, flat landing... Easy approach and fun moves don't hurt, either.

Comments: A key foot broke making the start of this problem considerably easier than it was for the first couple ascents. Nice work Ian and Katie, wish I could have tried what y'all did.

Comments: Great problem - one of the best at Burma. Not so bad - v8? Like tunder but a little harder? People should climb this and pretend Waffle House never happened...

Comments: Back off, Tyler. Don't you have some problems in CO to comment on? I have seen this massive line in person and it would take some serious balls to do it with two pads and no spotter, balls that Ian clearly has.
