Starting the same as Massive Vertigo and then head right. This line will take you straight up the boulder but over terrible landing that is hard to protect.


On the Massive Vertigo boulder.


As many pads as possible.

Rock quality looks a bit questionable on this one...

Really? I guess I do not remember that well, I would suggest lowering with a rope and giving it a scrub..

I've looked at this line, the rock needs a scrub but the holds seem solid. Climb it!

There's an obvious start that would add several hard moves into this problem. Could be the first v14 at the lake.

I don't mind a healthy debate but MP is a community resource. I'm totally open to comments and suggestion on ways to improve the DL area and routes, but backhanded sniping can stay on facebook.

By the way, Zachary/Nic, I completely agree with you about statistical outliers in rating consensus. You may have noticed that mountain project no longer counts any very high or very low outliers. It is relying more upon a medium. As you recall from math class however, this requires several individuals to post their opinion for any type of accuracy.
