I would love to be able to play hookey from work today and tomorrow.  Work sucks.
Speed Boulder, Ward?  If I did not know better, I'd say you are nuts.  You must really own 16 crash pads and intend on deploying all of them in the crash zone.


With age comes wisdom.  I did it in two overlapping pitches 12 years ago on a toprope with pads on the boulder behind you.   That will be my style of attempt.  The crux is pretty close to the top, and if you don't stick the dyno to the small crimps you might, 45 degree wall style, not let go of the better hold below you until last and then fall all the way down into the hole.   Most of the people who have done the route are capable of flashing it - I'm not.

Found a new boulder at Farley if you can believe it, although a (gasp) slab.  Mostly V1 to V3; this is Dr. Johnson on "Edged out," V2.

Ward, lest you forget; "friends don't let friends climb slabs".
I have to say it looks like a fun low angle face!  Nice find and scrubbing!!

I used to be a slab master of sorts...my first 5.12 onsight was a slab.   I have been climbing steep stuff for so long that V2 slab seems pretty damned hard, especially without any chalk.

I did't mention the nearby overhanging project with two mono moves on it....my tendons still hurt.

Somehow I get in that special mood and wander through the woods and manage to find all kinds of stuff...
