Setting Update for 6/26 and 6/27 + A Bad Sunburn + POTW + More Holds For Sale! + New Teknik Holds!

Setting Update

This week we reset the Font!  Me, Jay Jay, Danny, Jon, and Gabor were here for both days, Nic was here for half of Tuesday, and Jonny was here all day Wednesday. We put up a bunch of problems of all grades including several easier slabs that challenge different techniques than the normal easy slab will. Here are some pictures of the boulder.

Ha Ha Danny

This is why you should wear sunscreen when you go bouldering at The Park!

ouch!

Problems Of The Week

POTW #1 – Jay Jay set this little gem. Neon green tape. Starts on yellow pinch, moves out mini roof to pink pinch, out right through purple and yellow pinches, up to two green crimps, left to an orange HRT blob, and top. Requires a bit of technique and forethought. Great!

POTW #2 – Danny’s white problem with the most excellent perch move. Starts bottom left of this face on the 2nd start hold from the left, moves right through the big green Talon, up to a new red Teknik pinch, out left on another new red sloper and a pink pinch (use your technique!), left to a crimp and up. Balance!

More Holds For Sale!

We found a few more when we were stripping and resetting this wall, so the table has been refreshed.

There are some real classics here!  Some are just not fit for gym use anymore because of broken washers, chips, cracks, or other things that are easy to work with on a home wall but not a commercial facility. Others we have duplicates of, or…well, there are lots of reasons. These are a great deal though and won’t last, so get ‘em before they’re gone!

And finally…New Teknik Holds!

Joy!

More Joy!

I will be out of town for a few weeks but the boys and Jay Jay will be around and setting great new problems for you every week. Enjoy!

    Awesome idea having two POTW’s! Question: When does The Spot comp schedule come out for next year?
