CHAINSAW – V9 ***

This cutting edge boulder problem (pun intended) is right up there with some of the best hard problems in the West Kootenays. It’s certainly one of toughest at the Grohman Boulders and the feature itself will draw you in.

Crouch start with the two lowest opposing holds on the bottom of the prow. Slap up and compress into some insane squeezing of the knife blade feature to more positive holds above. The landing has been recently upgraded which has helped this problem solidify it’s classic status. A must-do at the grade!
