Me going for the flat hold. Blake spotting.

Check NPS for Closures


This problem climbs the tall northeast face of the boulder. The beginning holds are a bit nondescript, but you are heading up to a large, flat hold in the middle of the face. The first few moves are the crux - bad holds, bad feet, hard move up and right. It eases up at the top, thankfully.


To descend, it's easiest to jump over to the Hueco Boulder.

would it be correct to say from L-R "gas for my ass V5" "jumper V5" "ode to violette V5" "chuck fryberger's crazy highball (idk the name)" and then "hydracrack?" or is ode to violette inbetween gas for my ass and jumper?

You got me on this one. I don't really know all the problems the Colorado crew put in... Is there really another problem named Jumper? I put in Jumper (V4) on the backside by Jaba...

Jamison Coin I believe is right. Cronin is on Ode To Violetta.
