Comments: Doing it from the sits adds a couple nice flowy moves and keeps it around the same grade, but adds a little oomph.

Comments: I believe this is called 'Pit Viper', super fun. We just cleaned up 3-4 lines just to the right (walk through the small corridor between the boulders, with the fallen tree) at around V3-V7. Super fun lines that are also cleaning up with traffic, but once everything is said and done I think this boulder will host 5-10 good lines. Check it, yo.

Comments: "This thing makes me cry. So tricky. I've never sent it easily."

Ha, I've had similar experiences. Well, one day it'll go easily first try, swoop and send. Then I'll randomly be in the area a few weeks later, think 'I'll jump on this one for a quick send' and be stuck in front of the Mystical Steps 'til the sun drops.

Get the potato chip, pop to the patina.

Comments: Yeah I worked the sit long ago with that sharp left crimp, but the positioning never felt good to the point I just always did it from the half-stand.

After finally seeing Bob's beta (really low left hand to start, almost on the ground), it somehow flows so much smoother and actually makes the start feel fun. The comparison to 911 can be a tough call, as I feel like if your 6ft+, 911 is pretty mellow (easy to reach the good crimp from the good foot), but seems harder for shorties. Either way th... more >>

Comments: Well I know the Kennedy Ridge trail takes you to Ocean View trail and the old Camino Cielo, which you can follow and eventually be able to drop from the top down into Matillija Wall area. Pretty sure this would be fully legal access, although certainly much further travel.

I too would be interested in any updates, and can help out doing trail work!

Comments: Keeps breaking, keeps getting better. The main foothold for the transfer from the inside to the lip is gone. There are a variety of ways to solve this now, but all seem harder than the previous beta. The rock that's left is solid though, so this one is really cleaning up and should prove to be a lasting classic. Probably in the 7ish range now.

Comments: Yeah we should totally move it from Enlightenment Ridge to here, as it's one of the gems of the boulder and how I usually refer to the area (The Darkside).

Comments: Pine is back open. Glory! Rain about right now though, let those rocks dry!

Anyone know any history/knowledge of this problem? It's in the gully between the Groupsites and the First Site, by the Smokey the Bear sign.

Comments: Tom did a low start to this one, with the left foot pasted way down and left, left hand on a nothing, and right hand on the bottom of the mini iron wave. Seems in the V9 range.

Yeah, the rock can be a little crusty, but sometimes that's what life is about. The the moves are fun and the view is awesome, with the topout leading right to a sitting throne.

Comments: Hmmm, not sure. That might have been 'The Highway' (that one is pretty hidden, on the back 'mountain side' of the Spine), near OG Arete. This one is on the Ocean side, the front side of the Dragon boulders.

Coming out the right side of the cave is still open project, has two options and definitely goes. Probably in the 8-9 range?

Comments: Only done the 'Cheat start' (straddling the cave), but even still it's mega classic. Had trouble sticking the original start move to the sloper pinch in the sun...
Must come back for an early morning or night sesh.... Sooo good.

Comments: Did a little lower start to this one a few days ago... Left on a crimp (lower, almost continuation of the upper crimp rail. Near the V) and right on another crimp/sidepull near the same height. Foot down real low (had to dig out a little dirt for the heel) in a weird heucoey thing. Huck for the good pocket, and backstep catch to gain the original start. Good fun, ups the ante a bit. Felt as hard (or a bit harder?) than Sucker Punch..

Comments: Just did an ultra low start to this one.

Go deep, deep, deeper into the cave. Find two bomber underclings where the groove peters out, and make some awesome long reaches and plenty of toe hook trickery and blind holds out the steep roof to join into the start of The Maw.

One of the most butt draggery climbs EVER, but it's an awesome, sustained sandstone roof climb, with unique holds and moves. Keeps you on your toes, and requires some decent endurance. If you work out beta well it doesn't even... more >>

Either way that hueco is pretty sweet.

Comments: Sweeeeet problem, definitely some quality stone. Nominating that hueco/pinch for SBs 'Hold of the Year'

I did the sequence slightly different than Andy, after gaining the heuco and getting the right foot, gaston press into the left side of upper groove. This lets you get a high left foot and gun straight to the jug. Probably harder this way for shorties, but felt somewhere is the 6ish range this way if you've got the reach. Goood stuff, and nice setting.

Comments: Local ancient lore tells of a giant lizard that crawled from the sea into the mountains, where it dried up and turned into the Lizards Mouth formation. This is it's petrified butthole.

Comments: Awesome problem, took me a bit to work out the moves but once I found a tricky sequence I liked (kneebar, toehook) it eased up a bit (V6-7?). Probably a lot tougher for shorties (V7-8?).
