Comments: Top of The Notch V2/3. The line drawn in the photo is not really the line. As you get higher on the face, the right-facing ramp gets used mostly for feet, but the climb goes pretty much straight up.

Comments: Eddy,
From your description this sounds like the Turtle Traverse boulder, with the climbs "Upstairs, Downstairs" and "Around the Outside" on it. Do these climbs face the road?

Comments: Thanks. Looking for new climbs at that grade for when my shoulder heals, so I'm psyched to hear about it.

Comments: Do you know who it was that told you they think they got the first ascent?

That face left of Boomerang has been extensively climbed between 2000-2005, and I'm sure before then.

IIRC, there are 5 or 6 lines that have been done on that face. I'll have to look for my notes and walk by the boulder, and I'll get back with more info.

Comments: The first several ascents were done using the "eye" for a mono. Boredom and a bunch of motivated people combine to make interesting diversions.

Comments: The fallen boulder took out Forest Thump. Primate goes up the face before you get to the fallen boulder.

Comments: Boulderbum,
It's not out of sheer ignorance. The Vermonter who was with Sherman on the day of the send has misremembered the name and told the story repeatedly with the "Green Egg" name. Simple misremembering of something that happened years ago.

Hoping to get down there next weekend.

Comments: Just to clarify location, when standing with your back to Freezer, this is the boulder to the right. Walk around the right side of the boulder and The Rooster is found on the north face.

Good problem, but pull and stand lightly on the large jug/ledge halfway up.

Comments: Not a bad job with the map. A couple of notes:
Red Eft sits just off the trail.
Blue Hole is downhill and right of Maritime.
Triple B is left of Maritime, closer to the AT than Maritime, off in a valley of its own.
Mini me, Birds Nest, and Pig are all left of Fat Bastard, while swamp is down and a touch right.

Comments: John F

Haven't seen freezeus respond to a post I made either, so I'll give you some beta:

Start at the Spring Sliding Boulder, plenty there for your girl and Leaf Peepers Hate Spring for you.

Then Red Eft Boulder-Red Eft for her, Jamaican Lager for you.

Then head to right ridge area, plenty for her, Sloper Slapper and Heel Hooker for you. Return to Invisible Boulder and do Peg Board. Then back to LT and Dirty Crack Boulder. You do Dirty Crack, and she does Stinger Mantis.

At the Wester... more >>

Comments: If you're short and have a negative ape index, this climb requires good foot work, a lock off on a crimpy pinch, and a long reach for the top. Very fun.

Comments: Lot's of ways to do this one. The most natural line seems to be using both aretes, avoiding the face holds, and topping out right. Fun problem.

Comments: "Rocky",
I've a hard time believing we have FA's in this area, as it's so obvious from the Roots boulder. I'm waiting for someone to speak up. If no one does you'll get full credit, you media whore.

You guys are going to surpass the Smuggs and Bolton possibilities really soon.

Are we looking at schist here, or something else?
