: ... : Barn Door Boulder
This link up was shown to me by local John Myles and it is a lot of fun.Start as for Whales Tail (V4+) and traverse left onto the slopey shelf that starts Ahab Calling (V3) then get your feet situated, move your right hand up to the obvious crimp and make a long left hand move up to a good crimp then make a long right hand move(crux) to the top of Captain Condor (V5). Although it is a link up it climbs like an independent line so it deserves its own route in the database....[more] Browse More Classics in NH

What's the name of the 1 move wonder on the left side of the overhang that goes at V10? You pull on, throw to a pocket out right and then up move up to the lip. . .

If it is the one I think you are referring to it is called Ginseng for Genius. Listed as a V8 in the Kemple guide, it starts on a decent chip for the left and and a sloper crimp for your right, and tosses up to the quartz hold, then top out? The problem has a rock at the start which makes getting to the sit start a little weird?
If this is the route you are talking about, the stand start (from the quartz pocket) and moving to the lip is listed as Pound for Pound. Which is also the wrong name, Pound for Pound is actually the seams to the right and throwing to the quarts jugs by the lip. The stand start of Ginseng for Genius should be changed to Daily Dose and Pound for Pound's description should be changed to reflect the proper route info.
