Featured Route For Chocolate Boulder
Run towards bad feet vertical wall, smear jump up to jugs. jug haul to top out.

Scimitar (aka Dead Ringer) V6 7A  CA : San Diego County : ... : Chocolate Boulder
Blank face with sketchy low sloped foot holds. Run and jump to jugs and top out, or start on sharp, non-exsistent crimps to jugs then top out. walk down northeast part of boulder(easy). I personally didnt think this climb was v6, since once you get to the jugs its a jug haul, I would give it a stout v3 for the area. If throw up is v4, v5 SDS, this probably isnt v6. Dont let it fool you though, its quite the reach!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Well done, sir! I always thought that third problem to be a solid V3 slab climb. The whole face is great for practicing your foot work, and your 'falling off of slabs' technique.
