So today, I explored a local park of mine, and found 3 semi large boulders.

I had time to climb one, and after a few tries managed to top out on it.

To those of you who have, how do you name a problem?

Also, I regularly boulder V1-V2+ in a gym, what grade do you think this problem would be if I could complete it after 3 tries?

DUDE! Your ankles....
Generally, you name it after something significant to it's christening?
You should call it "Spray".

It's good to be excited...

My personal recommendation is just to climb as much as you can and worry about this type of stuff down the road.

Have fun.

Naming is fun. Just let it occur naturally, and don't get grandiose unless it's a new free line on the west face of Mt Thor. Joe Huggins

A good name that I've been thinking about (since I went on that 80's action movie binge with the vaporizer) is

"Lord Humungus"

You're welcome
