Comments: I accidentally stumbled across the boulder today. I've marked its location on the area's map.

Comments: Matt had this one listed as a V1. I wasn't sure if this was graded for a sit or stand start. For the stand, I'd agree with the V1, but I felt like the sit start warranted a higher grade.

Comments: Be-boulder-er....that's clever, I like it. Thanks Jared. It was equally impressive watching you put it down with such ease!

Comments: I'd recommend a pair of pants if trying the knee-bar. The feature has some teeth on it.

Comments: This thing is an enigma to me. Anyone know if a major hold has broken on it? Seems very tough for the grade.

Comments: The sit start version is slightly awkward but definitely boosts the grade and adds some mileage. Start with hands on opposing sidepulls and a high foot edge, then pull hard with a slap up to the sidepull start hold. Or, there may be an initial knee-bar to pull into with the start holds as well, I felt better with the previous beta though.

Comments: Okay, I think I've got it figured out. Per an old Colorado Bouldering guidebook, by Phillip Benningfield, I found the following: the beta photo for Victoria and Seduction are spot on, Kinky's page is misleading though, as the photo is actually of the problem Seduction, I think. Also, both of the problems that are called Ted's and Kinky share the same sit start on the west overhang and climb through the two-finger pocket, then Kinky finishes to the left and Ted's finishes to the right. I'll try t... more >>

Comments: Can someone do beta photos for Victoria, Seduction, and Kinky? I was playing around on these the other day, and I couldn't discern where these problems start and end. Anything would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: Sounds good, and best of luck, Brad! Definitely not my problem though. I saw a few people send it a few years ago, way before I could drag my butt around that lip ;). Don't remember their names, I think they were from the Rifle or Roaring Fork area? Anyway, I thought it was a good one, and thought it deserves some love!

Comments: Thanks, Brad! Used a completely different method. Went with the crimp high and out left for the first move instead of the one directly over the start holds.

Comments: There is an SDS for this problem as well. Adds some mileage to an already stellar problem.

Comments: The Chiseled Arete Boulder has been torched. It looks like someone had a bombfire directly below the southeast arete. Unbelievable! Not sure how this will effect the holds on the sit starts, but I would imagine they're more friable now.

Comments: Rock experts,
I've always been curious about Nine Mile's range of rock quality. From what I understand, it's Dakota sandstone. But when I consider how different the rock is, it just doesn't make sense to me. For instance, the rock quality at the Texas Boulders is nothing like the rock quality of the Chinese Boulders. Is this just a natural range of Dakota sandstone in general or is there something else to it?

Comments: I have a guidebook that shows an unnamed, V7 problem which ascends the center, north face of Striped Rock. After many attempts and failures to climb it, I'm curious if anyone has any beta or information on it.
