Comments: Jug on the left is off? Is this climb an eliminate?

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?).

Comments: Cool little zone, with some shade in Ojai! Interesting sandstone conglomerate climbing with some classic mantels and a few quality, delicate slab lines and bonus gems. If you're in Ojai check it out.

Fun to walk up Pratt trail (shaded, not too steep) and go down the other way (awesome views near sunset). Adds a tiny bit of distance as you have to walk back to the parking lot, but the loop fun factor makes it worth it.

Comments: Just got back this morning, some nice cold misty fog moving in...

The gate is open, saw small posted signs at the first few lower campsites saying something like "This area closed due to the Government Shutdown" but all the upper sites had no such signs. Camped last night with no issue.

Comments: Yes, there are a few climbs in the area with bolt anchors on top. I believe in the area known as 'Little Zion' ?

Comments: Had my first excursion out here a few weeks ago. Legit single boulder, love that patina and crazy runnel features.

In my eyes this problems has at least 3 variations: left, to the pocket at around v7/8?, straight up (almost dynamic) seems V5, or high foot and mantel out right (probably around V5 as well).

All good fun, I'll have to come back to finish that pocket variation...

Comments: Yeah that is a sweet variation. Prob around V6, I felt the crux was moving your feet up to setup for the dyno. The positioning and swing from the dyno is awesome, good fun, with the Arboretum mantle to finish.

I sometimes compare this boulder with the Dancing Outlaw boulder. With a few good warmups, tons of variations and exit options, plus that sweet kickboard/mini roof project on the front, this is a boulder that just keeps on giving.

Comments: Yeah circuit bouldering is one of my favorite 'styles'

The left side circuit is a bit more moderate but great at well. Usually the Coffee boulder amphitheater, to South Street, then Extremist, Shoehorn and finish with Font Problem.

A good warm up circuit, with some highballs off the bat to get the mind and heart going, with a few good tough sloper problems thrown in. And then it clears off the left side of the Yard and dumps you back near the middle for the rest of your sesh.

Comments: Holds do exist lower down, they are just... small, placed awkwardly and far apart.

An awesome project from the 'lower' start (still a stand start, but not cheat stone start).

Comments: Do you guys do this starting from the small left hand crimp near head height, or the super low undercling for the left near shin height? This 'version' seems to line up well with the 5s, but maybe I'm doing it wrong.

Comments: Finally got this thing today. Took quite a while to unlock a complex sequence that actually worked for me, and felt consistently hard. The landing is perfect and the fall short, so you can really just go for it. Fun climb.

Comments: Way to go, nice job Andy!!

I haven't even gotten on this thing yet and I already know it's hard. Now that's it's done, my interest is certainly piqued... Maybe I'll wait for a cool day to give it a try? ;)
