Surgical Procedure.

Description 

Start down low in a sloper hueco like pocket. Make a series of moves up to the crux where you hit 3 razor sharp crimpers. Move with surgical precission through these crimps up to a fun topout.

Hope your crimp strength is up!!

In my opinion, this is probably one of the best lines in this canyon.


Location 

This route, from the main area and The Weeping Boulder, head right, along the trail - past The Abyss Boulder and follow the trail. There are 4 trailmarkers that lead you right to the Rib Cage Boulder where there are many various problems.


Protection 

A couple of pads.

Very cool, very fun, very held together with excessive glue.

V5?! What a freakin' joke! That's a total sandbag. This thing is more like solid V7 at least.

Sounds like someone got shut down, lol....

I originally rated this V7 when I first cleaned and sent. But due to showboating d bags whining, I dropped the grade and have since decided that a more defined consensus is needed to shut people up. I'll move it up to V6-7, though :)

Sounds like a cocky FA artist got a bit mad that someone flashed it...that being me. Too bad mature folks like LDY and myself don't flip when people flash their lines. I don't remember LDY downgrading Mono Pocket Rocket when I flashed that too. Why don't you go over to the arena and get your REAL crank on...hope your DD mentality is ready, Caleb.

That's amazing that you sent it your first go ;)

Not trying to flex nuts here, lol.

And since I have no idea who you are - there is in no way, a possibility, that I could have been referring to you as a showboat (or Loren - not sure why you feel the need to drag him into this). The comment was a friendly stab at some homies who are retarded strong.

NEH made me laugh though with his comment - I've been in his shoes before...head out to a line you think is in your grade level only to find it's sandbagged, and the trip out to the problem ends with you being thoroughly frustrated.

You gangster, dude - why are you arguing over a V6?

Sorry, Caleb...misinterpreted your comment. Next time I'm back home, we should boulder:) You, me, and others have all spent time putting up some great lines in Junction. I think, that we both assume I got the 2nd of Peregrinus and Corner Cafe too...both great lines. Cheers!

Ummm. Thanks, Loren :) Holds have broke since my last ascent. I broke a hold today as well. I have updated the grade and kept it conservative. Still an excellent problem as are most on this boulder.
