•2018/01/22 • 1 Comment

Daniel Rudolf sent me this video of his friend doing a worthy variant of Bald Eagle. His line continues upward into the final crux move on All Burnt Out then traversing left to the top of All Washed Up.

Update: Joel called it a v9.

•2018/01/22 • Leave a Comment

Matt Birch, who now resides in the Southwest, repeated the sit (yabo) to Nicole Overhang. 1 year ago Birch injured his right index finger and has been slowly returning to healthy form. This repeat was his first effort to seriously crimp with that finger.

This is the original start for the sit.

Blockhead Revisited

•2017/07/23 • 4 Comments

The newest edition of the JT guidebook (2nd Wolverine Edition) has incorrect numbering for the problems on the Blockhead boulder, even though the previous 2 editions (1st Wolverine/1st KDpublishing) had the numbers correct. The copy is correct (meaning nothing was changed), but the photo is now incorrect. Ugh. Regardless, Jill added the linkup from the sit start of Nitwit exiting on False Blockhead, called Nitwit Head, v6. If anyone had done this prior to January 29, 2017, let Robert or this blog know, so he can accurately establish the historicity of JT bouldering.

Start position for Jill. Basically being matched on the low crimps is the yabo start.
