Comments: I cleaned it, but did not do the FA. I think it was a climber named Mike from Squamish.

Comments: I noticed the big jug flake has been pulled off before traversing onto the ledge. This may effect the first crux on Skyfall....but you still have to make the dyno:)

Comments: I added a harder start to the left that links in at the second bolt. Might add a letter or two. I did this years ago, so I'll get the details for the start the next time I'm out.

Comments: Good to see some scrubbing happening in this sector. That large trail side boulder will have some nice lines.

Comments: I was out at Hunter for the last 2 days. Perfect conditions...the stick was amazing. I added a few pics to the photo gallery from The Falconer Boulder. Just a few projects to get stoked for in the upcoming season.

Comments: I gave this route a try not too long ago on lead and I would suggest around .12+. I was able to work through all of the crux but could not stick the final big deadpoint. The crux section feels like V6 or 7 with some very thin and painful holds. The final move is a huge reach across to a very thin, flared seam, which I kept popping out of. Cool problem.

Comments: Where do I find this boulder? Also, does anyone have any info for this area?

Comments: Hey Mike, is that the one that starts in the cave/overhang and then moves out onto the face? I was on this years ago. A hold broke on me and I took a big fall onto the beach. Lucky for the sandy landing. I actually like this route.

Comments: I agree with the bottom sequence going at around .11, I got it last season, but I'm not sure I would use a pad for the start. That ankle busting flake creeps me out. You definitely need one more bolt for the top section, but you're right about reaching to the crack before the top. The Matrix Reloaded:)

Comments: Hey Peter, I don't climb on rope much so I was just making a guess as to the grade. The first 15' are very balancy, as Dru mentioned, and it was a very hot day.

Hey Dru, does The Puzzle traverse into Sleeping Princess? If so could I get the name of the climber who did the FA.

Comments: I took 4 big falls onto the deck just before reaching the crack. If it wasn't for my belayer's spot I would have gone another 30' onto the trail below. I would recommend using a crash pad, I didn't, and now I can barely walk.

Not sure if I actually did the FA, but if not please inform me and I will change the info.

Comments: Nice pic.

The problem is actually called Snake Charmer. The FA was done by Trent Hoover who rated it V8.

Comments: I would recommend clipping the small tree with a horizontal. I did this climb without using the tree and found that the first clip was a bit sketchy with a potential 35-40ft whipper onto the first pitch slab. The remainder of the climbing is fun.

Comments: Tried this problem yesterday from the undercling and a sidepull/edge at the end of the rail. The first move felt V3 ish.
