Setting Update April 19-21

We spent Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday frantically filling in the river wall, the Font boulder, and the front side of the Hueco.  We put up a ton of problems of all grades, so no matter what you climb you will have some climbs to warm-up on and some others to work on.

This pic is actually from before the comp, but I just found it so here you go.  Notice how they’re dressed the same?  Sportiva shoes, Verve pants, Spot shirt.  Happens all the time.  Yesterday it was Carlo and Garrett–tan Spot hoodie, brown pants, 5.10 shoes.  It’s cute, no?

Our first fill-in day was the river and since it’s not as tall as the other boulders it’s easier to set tons of problems there.  We had a speed competition, which Jon won with 10 boulders.  Garrett and I both set 9, and I’m not sure about Jonny or Carlo.  We set a lot though–almost 50 new problems!

5 minute nap between setting and forerunning.

Day 2 was the Font, and we had Jay-Jay’s help, and we filled that boulder up too!  I even set a special birthday problem for my friend Brooke, who just turned 9.  The problem is up the right side of the boulder, the slightly overhanging face, and is blue with a red chico dot and a 9 written on it.  There are 34 holds on the problem, and so far I haven’t seen anyone skip any of the hands except the high left bumping hold near the top.  I’m pretty happy with it.

You may have seen Jay Jay's black eye a couple of weeks ago. It's cause she dropped this hold on her face!

Finally, on Wednesday we filled in the front of the Hueco.  As usual, the Hueco has more hard problems than easy on it, but we did manage several problems in the 2+ and 3- range, as well as some 3, 3+, and 4- problems.  And there are some 4s through hard 5s as well–something for everyone!

    I wish you’d set more hard problems on the back slab on the font!

    Ah, yes. Sorry about the oversight on that one. We’ll try and get some up before we strip again for the Battle in The Bubble.
