Quick Setting Update for 6/7 and 6/8

If you’ve been in the gym you’ll have noticed the brand new problems covering the front of the Hueco boulder.  The crew was small this week–on Tuesday it was Danny, Carlo, and I with Garrett for two hours in the morning.  It took us quite a while to strip the whole boulder, not to mention the several stuck holds, but after lunch we were very productive and put up one of each grade from 3- to 5+.

Garrett and Danny ready for our lunch time field trip.

On Wednesday Garrett and Jonny were with us for the whole day and we filled in the front of the boulder as best we could with many awesome and challenging problems.  If you’re climbing 5+, you should definitely check out the white up the center of the boulder.  If you get stuck navigating the two crimps and bubble wraps, ask a setter for the secret beta.  Also good for 4 spot climbers are the green and blue in the small scoop, and for 3 spot climbers there are several nice problems across the whole front of the boulder.  We ate way too much lunch on Wednesday, since we went to Modmarket and got huge salads, then ate cookies I made at home, then for some reason on the way back to the Spot we went to Ripple for frozen yogurt.

Yeah. Yum.

Then we went back to the gym to finish setting and forerun.  So if the problems from Wednesday feel soft, this is probably why.  We all gained 20 lbs at lunch.  Next week?  The Beach!

    Jackie, they do not feel soft at all. The yellow 4 spot on the right side/big scoop is maybe the hardest 4 spot ever…

    the weird crimpy one with the blue chico? sorry about that. i think we gave it 4+, do you think it is harder? it’s so hard to tell with crimpers…

    No, it’s just yellow. Long cross move up and right on good holds leads to a mediocre match, then I had to resort to campusing at the top…

    The yellow/blue is probably 5-, as is the green/white (though the white seems to disappear randomly) in the center of the wall. At least to me. I can’t do the green/white at all.

    Overall either I’m feeling weak these last few days or you guys set hard, or both.
