Comments: Don't expect to just send this thing. Its pretty tough and wears you down quick! Don't judge it by its looks. It stays hard till you pull over the top.

Comments: Your just mad that can do laps up this thing. ^ Its a V4 for me I can def. Agree with the height issue though it will feel hard if your shorter.

Comments: This route has gotten I smidge harder due to some crucial crystals breaking off. Still flows great and is a great route.

Comments: Been some action on this "lost" route. Lost as in not much action the past couple of years. Seems to have 3 bolts not sure on the fourth? Looks super easy turns out this one makes ya think. I'd say coming from harbinger to this route the people I was climbing with thought 5.10 B/C for it. I feel it is not 5.10-. IMHO. Nice work BK figured it was yours but wasn't sure. If I'm not mistaken didn't you say the 5.11 had been removed?

Comments: This problem cuts left towards the top of the arete on slopers. The direct variation has been done by a couple of people. Its an excellent problem. Someone needs to add the sit.

Comments: There is a sit that starts down LOW on good chalked holds. The Chester Moves right on good holds into The Cheat ( V7). Also, If you don't get the small crimps at the end prepare for a body slam of massive proportions. :)

Comments: Hey Matt,
I find the best times are late summer/ Fall and Spring being the best for cooler temps and the best friction. Hope this helps.

Comments: Indeed it is confusing but for accuracey and now its a name that has been given to a boulder problem and a sport route. I was once told this problem may have been done in the late 70s. Long before the sport route i'm guessing.

Comments: Bring a brush the gash is a little gritty still. This problem is hard and in a way awkward. It took me about 3 days to finally figure it out. I'm sure some could flash it easily. Glad to hear people working it. I had to get a high left foot out left and then jump for the right side where the block curves down. If you look closely you can see a small bad indent to hit. Make a scary mantle and it's over.

Comments: This problem is Unrepeated as of 2014. DD showed me the actual Sds line. What people climb now is just a SDS to Open Wide (V5). DD pointed the exact line out on a hike. It starts slightly right of Up The Funk and moves left into Open Wide.
