I've bouldered many times at Cuevas as we called it since the mid nineties, and my friends and I finished several decent problems, (though nothing past about V2, since we were beginning).
I haven't climbed in many years, but now I'm getting back into it, so I'd like to contribute some of the problems we did to your section here.
I tripped out when I saw the Flea Protein post!
Javier Placencia and I named that problem when we were bouldering there with Espo and Ploss in '99 or so.
Sorry for the history lesson ,LOL, but if anyone was wondering...
Flea protein is a strange name, but it came about from me telling Javier about an army project I read about where they were using protein from flea legs to try to produce high-tech shock absorber/jumping devices for the military.
Jav liked the term so much, he gave it to this climb and I guess it stuck.
There is a boulder on the northwest side of Cuevas we called Blood Boulder because one of the problems (about V2 to 3) has a super sharp flake hidden in a pocket which is impossible to see until you get cut by it.
There are 2 other problems we did on this boulder.
There are several other problems I'd like to post as well.
