"Yowzah!"


Paul Robinson working on what may become the next really hard, classic, boulder problem in Colorado. I believe it may fetch a grade of V14,8B+ when completed...

few years back, mr. lemaire almost nabbed the FA of that rig but blew an important hold for the bulge/slabby upper section, took a horrific fall, and never was able to figure it out after the loss.

this line has captivated many and spit the same. believe that even mr. chuckles and mr. kehl fell prey to its siren song to smack up the head tactics.

thanks, you look fantabulous as well.

I found a pretty natural line and easier sequence that hugged the arete and went out onto the right face a little bit...but still couldn't put the top out together. What about the long traverse in from the left?

Hey AF. I think it is easier it to enter the crux the same way, but Paul was just going for it direct. The traverse in wouldn't add much to the difficulty. However, the traverse from the start of the Project > across the face > toping out left is stellar and still undone. Paul did do a stand start to the traverse and topped it out left. Some photos of that are just down page, including the post called "Focus."
