Comments: The "viscous hold" at the second bolt can be bypassed using alternate beta and makes the lower half of the climb much more enjoyable. Highly recommended route to get on if the overhung Super Best Friends isn't your forte.

Comments: Really enjoyed the movement on this one! Thought it was a bit harder than V5. At least compared to others I've done in the park. A great collection of problems not more than 100 feet up from the tumbled rocks trail.

Comments: Topping out this boulder is very enjoyable and exciting. If you get sketched out, all you do is cam your body into the crack you lay back on. Then just rest up, calm your head, and finish it up.

Comments: Get on this route! It is so much fun and tests your overhung climbing skills. One of my personal favorites of the area.

Comments: Someone help me with this problem... I've been to it twice and the top moves are not a problem for me, it's the start when getting established on the small left hand sidepull/pinch and the good right hand. Is the knee bar a crucial part of the beta?? Or am I missing some other DL foot trickery?

Comments: Tonight was a special night indeed. A solo bouldering trip out to the Lake ended with a send of possibly my longest standing boulder project, the Flatiron (V4). This thing has been spitting me off for so long and I can't keep count of how many time I've tried it. But tonight was the end of a long, and at times, frustrating process. I made the last revisions to my beta and finally reached the upper hold in the right crack that marks the end of the crux. I knew from that point I could finish it an... more >>

Comments: I've been climbing this route the past few times I've been up to the Adidas wall. It is really a fun route and different than all the others on the wall. That said, it is also clean and free of debris so if you're looking for a fun 5.10 to lead with good stances from stemming this is your route!

Comments: The quality of this route has gone up in recent years with it seeing a bit more traffic. The holds are very clean and texture still good. Although my first .13, I think this route is definitely fun and worth your time. Props to Cole for putting it down with me tonight! Maybe a first for the route... 2 redpoints in one day???

Comments: Take a crack at the SDS. It adds a couple fun moves and is only a grade harder IMO.

Comments: A brick-sized hold pulled off the top of Chinese Freedom yesterday. It was the small blocky ledge to the left of the chains. What remains is a similar ledge although slightly more incut, but it shouldn't change the grade at all. The reach to it now won't be as long though. Be cautious at the top of this route as the jugs you clip the chains from are part of a larger shield that sounds very hollow and it would be a doozey if that ever decided to come off completely. Luckily the chains ar... more >>

Comments: Rock quality on the upper half is very loose and breakable. Tread lightly, or you might find yourself airborn... harder than 5.8 in my opinion as well.

Comments: I stumbled upon this last fall looking for the Amazing Pillar and wondered what it might go at! It looks sweet! Happy sending!

Comments: I'm sad to inform that part of the starting hold has broken. It was the right hand thumb catch. Although there is a small piece of it remaining, I believe it makes the pinch a bit harder to grasp. As I was unable to even get my ass off the ground, someone else will have to determine if the grade of the problem should be raised.

Comments: I chickened out on this today with only 2 pads and 1 spotter, but definitely want to get back on it. Was there any thought toward excavating the landing area or is it going to remain as is for a little extra spice factor?

Comments: Super fun line! I started a little lower in the undercling flake but it still felt like V6 to me. I'm so surprised this wasn't found till recently. Props Ian!

Comments: Yeah, I've definitely watched that a couple times. You're right about that next right hand move being hard. You make it look easy in the video. I got stuck trying to make that move. But I'm assuming that's the V6 move.

Comments: Yes we did! Thanks again for the beta. I'm looking forward to getting back out there to finish it up before the fall season ends.

Comments: Not a bad route at all. Just needs more traffic due to the sand on the bottom. If you like powerful slopey slaps up an arete while heel hooking then this is for you. Definitely worth a visit if doing some problems on the Godfather. It's only a short walk up and to the right.

Comments: I heard from Aaron Stetzer that when he first cleaned the boulder they were going to name it "Trainal Probe" because of a very intrusive dead and pointy stump right at the base of the climb. But the climb has yet to be FA'd so it's not set in stone.

Comments: Haha, yeah James fell just before the top out, the pad slipped out and lets just say his ass was sore for a while after that.
