Comments: i believe Carls problem is slightly left of this one. Willy and I did some clean up and the first two holds broke off to produce better holds.

Most the stuff on the hillside by this block were done the same time. The Prow was one of the first lines shown to me. This block was for sure bouldered out by 2009/10. The tree that someone decided to cut down in a way caught you if you fell. It was a squeeze and I remember someone downclimbing that way. The FA and " Original" names I was told were ... more >>

Comments: Great straight forward line that looks easier than is. Endurance and fighting the pump is the hardest part. Have yet to link it up. Great problem for the area!

Comments: PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING: White Rock is a beautiful bouldering place comprised of Dakota Sandstone. THIS IS PRIVATE LAND the landowners have allowed bouldering. PLEASE TREAD LIGHTLY AND SHOW RESPECT. LEAVE NO TRACE ethics this place is not ours. If you see people doing stupid irresponsible things kindly let them know the above. Let's show that climbers are respectable.

Comments: I thought the Lewis Brothers did this crack traverse also? Either way good problem. I once saw a weird low start into this. Do you know when Jason did this one?

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.
