New Variations on Desert Teflon Boulder

Manual Tupas added three variations to the existing lines on the Desert Teflon boulder:

The numbers correspond to the list below.

The numbers correspond to the list below.

Here are the combinations for the above numbers:

1. The V5 yabo into Desert Teflon. Desert Teflon Sit V5
2. Desert Teflon into the Unnamed V4. Desert Lace V5
3. The V5 yabo into Desert Lace. Leatherface V6

Thanks, Manual.

My personal take on these variations is that they offer the single boulderer more climbing without the need for a spotter or tons of pads. And since the desert offers reasonable distances between boulders, one can turn it into a circuit with some cardio/hiking in between. Locals know that the short problems are their circuit lines when they don’t want to focus on tall stuff and the mental game that requires. Both Squamish and Fontainebleau have tons of short lines that only require one pad. I’d like to see many more of these short lines included in future guidebooks for Josh with maybe suggestions for circuits.
