Sorry for the terrible quality. This ~15' rock is right downhill from Deadly Pillars; there's a truly incredible (and hard) looking climb up a steep face.

Comments: This climb feels absurdly hard to me. Not that I'm any expert at 12+/13- rock climbing, but it feels way harder than anything I've tried in that range.

Maybe it's because my knee doesn't fit well in the knee-bar. More likely it's because I'm weak. In any case, fair warning.

Is this the 'large boulder' mentioned in the description downhill from the pillars? There look to be two really good lines on it, and someone has clearly cleaned it. Still projects?

Comments: This climb is impressive. I thought I would be excited to climb it, but had a change of heart standing underneath with a tiny pad (and tiny spotter).

Has anyone done a sit to this boulder? I figured out beta starting low in the corner, RH on a jug sidepull and LH on a cool pinch on the roof. I didn't succeed in sticking the move into the actual start of Big Short but I was close enough to know it's possible... well, possible for someone.

Comments: This really is an awesome boulder problem; one of the best I've done at this grade.

After seeing the above video I realize I did it pretty differently; instead of making the big right hand deadpoint to the jug, I went into a gaston of the two finger pocket and then went left hand to said jug. Not sure if that is true to the line, or if it changes the grade.

The sit adds awesome moves but IMO they don't make the climb considerably harder.

Comments: Could somebody clarify the difference between the variation and the 'original' climb? Does the original version go left and squeeze between the trees and the rock, or does it finish by reaching right from the triangular hold to the easy crack?

Thanks!

Comments: Anyone scoping out a line on that beautiful face? It looks steep and featured and appears to have some placements.

Comments: Anyone know the name of a 10- a climb or two to the left of this? If you look at the picture, you can see the right arm of someone climbing it. Thanks!
