Standout Problem #2

BOXCAR WILLY – V6 **

Part two of the installment is also located at the Grohman Boulders. It is another line that is mis represented in the guidebook (I know, it’s brand new but I couldn’t climb every route before publishing). More fine climbing to be had at Grohman is always an awesome thing.

Crouch start with two opposing side pulls on the arete on the left side of the overhang. Compress up the arete with tricky slopers to an all points off dyno (same as ‘Night Moves’) to the sick sloper jug over the lip and a fun mantle. This line is very good and listed as V7 and only one star in the current guidebook. It’s actually really good. Have fun!

Standout Problem #1

BENGAL SPICE – V7 ***

This list the first of the series, a classic at Grohman that is often overlooked. It features some mighty fine rock and it’s close to many other good lines.

Located at the Track Boulders at Grohman. Described in the guidebook as V6 with only one star. This is actually a fine crimpy test piece with extremely high quality stone. Stand start on the obvious crimpy rail and make tenuous moves up and right with small feet to better holds and a big chuck for the side pull jug as per ‘Macho Man’. Finish on the good holds of that route. Highly recommended for those looking for a technical line on crimps. Check it out!
