Location: WI : Devil's Lake : Devil's Lake Bouldering : Burma Road Bouldering : The Nose (V2-3)
By: Terry Kieck When: Oct 17, 2014

view comment >>
Comments: There are several stand alone problems and variations on this short prow and the sides that have been done ranging from V0 to V3. I cleaned and climbed them shortly after the Burma area was discovered. I called the problem you are referring to "The Nose". The rotten stump at the base was still a live tree when I first did the problems so the start was tight squeeze back then. I was out there a week ago and climbed them again but didn't bother to clean the top outs. The crack and face to the ... more >>

Comments: I used to do the cross cube traverse as part of a circuit at BFR so I do know it has been done before. Its surprising how fast moss grows. I would give the FA to the guys of the past. I doubt I was the first. Good long boulder traverse! Thanks for posting the problem.


Location: WI : Devil's Lake : East Bluff - East Rampart : Pedestal Buttress : Ironmongers Super Direct (5.11a)
By: Terry Kieck When: Jul 23, 2014

Comments: Its been a few years since I have been on Super-direct but I recall it is very contrived. Only the face left of the corner is "on". Go straight up to the join ironmongers. The business of the route is probably only the first 20 feet you mentioned until it reaches the regular route.

Comments: Thanks for making an old man feel stronger as I age! It could be harder that V1 but I didn't intentionally sandbag it. I have it so wired now that it is hard for me to judge but it is easier for me that Big Bud. Arete's are fair game and feet are small on the face. Comparing it to other V1's at the north shore it probably is more difficult. Maybe it is a V2.

To me Oil can is a V0. I down climb it when I do the problems nearby.

Comments: I top out on the right of the tree branch. Pretty sure that is where the original problem topped out. Then of course, down climb the tree!


Location: WI : Devil's Lake : East Bluff - Far West End : Balanced Rock Wall : Beer and Booty (5.10a/b PG13)
By: Terry Kieck When: May 29, 2014

view comment >>
Comments: I know it has been done before. I did it years ago and I doubt I was the first. There are several variations, contrivances, and possible stand alone routes on balanced rock wall (and others in the park for that matter) that are still only word of mouth or where done and no one was told. I enjoy doing something new to me that isn't in a guide book or on the internet and just walk away feeling good about the climb and accomplishment. If I don't tell people about it maybe they can experience the ... more >>

Comments: The 2 problems very near FRB have been done before plus a few other problems right in that cluster. Sorry, but I don't recall names. However, I went to check out Dreamo Bluff and South of fire road area earlier this week and I've never been on them before. First ascents to my knowledge. Some fun problems, Nice job!

Comments: The large flake has been loose as long as I can remember. Certainly unnerving to pull on it though...

Comments: Hey EB! I wish I was back with the same free time of old but that is not the case. I still get out but with very spontaneous trips for maybe a couple of hours. Hard to commit to a consistent night. I just thought I would post some of these problems that I have done for years and aren't on this site. Plus I finally got a smartphone and learned how to post!!

Comments: FA Eric Zschiesche - When I asked how hard it was he said (with a classic southern acsent) " awe hell, call it V4 and ya'll figure it out... Welcome to the lake" I've never been able to do it with the sequence Eric used. Sandbag!


Location: WI : Devil's Lake : Devil's Lake Bouldering : East Bluff Bouldering : Junkyard Boulder : Slap It (V3)
By: Terry Kieck When: Nov 8, 2013

view comment >>
Comments: The Junkyard boulder was found by EB and/or Eric Z on a fine fall day when we still had our Wednesday night bouldering league (around 2000?). We went out there as a group and in that outing and on many trips since that boulder has been pick clean of nearly every variation. Unless a problem is wicked hard its been done already. Don't believe or at least I can't recall giving anything names. Maybe EB would know?

The best problem on this boulder in my opinion is a low traverse left to right che... more >>

Comments: This has been done before. I cleaned and worked it out about the same time I did "head over heals". Grade seems about right. I also did some straight up problems on the face trying to start as low as possible but with the lack of height of this boulder they weren't very inspiring.

Comments: I may have taken that photo. I was out there a few times with Eric and one day he handed me his camera to take some action shots. It looks like my old pad on the ground. If this is the case Eric owns the rights to the photo.

Comments: Been done before. Maybe Paul Jones??? I've scrapped my shins a few times trying to establish a good foot placement on that thing!

Comments: There are several problems/variations and eliminates on this boulder that I have been doing for years including the left arete. I don't believe any of them were given official names. Just boring refenences like the 'left side' or 'go straight up'.

Comments: You're correct the Mini Me is not listed on MP. I did the FA on that years ago. Its a blank face about 10 feet high on the same level ( so above special K and welcome to the lake) as big bud arete around to right maybe 30 feet. Use the aretes to work your way up to dyno to the lip.


Location: WI : Devil's Lake : Devil's Lake Bouldering : East Bluff Bouldering : East Bluff South : ... : The Sideshow Boulder
By: Terry Kieck When: Apr 10, 2012

Comments: I thought that looked familar EB! It was call the Diamond Boulder due to its shape. If I recall correctly Eric Z did the direct problem Paul is refering to. The other problems I remember traversed out left (sideshow)and one that went right and then up around the corner above a boulder. I'll have to get back up there an check it out. Thanks for bringing the boulder back to life.

Comments: Straight up the arete. Holds on the left face are off. Hands stay on the arete as you work upward with a fair amount of body tension. There used to be a nice flake inches right of the arete up 8'-9' high (one can still see where it once was) that was useful but now its in my garage. I had to work out a different sequence but I felt the grade was the same.

Comments: I've done several, I'd call stupid, variaions on this short face. Hardly worth doing do to the height. They are all a couple of moves and its all over but the top out. V0 to V1 at best.

Comments: Moss sure grows fast out here. This had been done sometime around 2000. I think the FA was Eric Z or Paul Jones. I don't remember a name or rating.

Comments: I agree with Mr. Rhoads about adding variations or eliminates under the orginal problem so here it is. Instead of moving right to the series of side pulls. I went left foot to a slot down and left of start hold with a back step/knee drop then straight up with left hand to crimp (crimp was covered with moss, which I cleaned, so I don't think it had been used). Easier than the orginal. V1

Comments: This problem has been done previously. Eric Z did a sit down start starting deep in the pit. This boulder has been climbed for years and pretty well picked over. Some fun stuff for sure. The only problem I'm not sure has been done is start by what you call the classic route and move up and left. Eric Z worked it but not sure if he ever cleaned it up.
