Does anyone have any info on the established boulder problems at the hump?
In particular, the problem on you right as you walk in that goes through the low roof on nasty slopers. Name/grade etc

Is ther any established problems out there?

Any info would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Phil

You mean on Straining Rail Buttress - lip traverse facing the road above the blackberries (note- must spray those) or the Omega block side?

And yes, there are a fair amount of established boulder problems on Camels Hump spread out over the hillside. ;-)

The omega block side.
Very hard problem (V8??) on slopers and small crimps at the end.

Is there any info on the problems marty, or do you just need a tour guide??

Humpty Dumpty is the steep problem with the pinch, rising to the right hand finish, what you describe could be the variant going left at the start.

Scribbled notes - so tour guide only at the moment.

drag coefficient (Motorbike + bouldering mat) = drag coefficient (kombi)

True Neil, but it's lonely if going by Motorbike...

And the Satellite mat strapped on lengthwise isn't too bad Tim, just get more stares than usual!

And that's without getting into the lift-gravity-thrust-drag diagram. Not much fun with a mat/wing at 45deg nose-up

hop over fallen dead tree to get to no.1

1. starts under roof on big pocket. tiny sharp pocket undercling and slap out to hold on lip. from there unknown? looks V-hard.

2. head up and left on big sloper rail with a big jug pinch/undercling to crimp.

3. numerous edges heading right. chalked holds go all the way out to the front of the block and up.

so, whats what?

Humpty Dumpty V9 (FA Sutter) is the steep problem with the pinch, rising to the right hand finish (start of 3 on your diagram)

Problem 2 is a variant of Humpty Dumpty going left at the start. It looks like a really good problem in it's own right, also easier. FA of this left line I think was Matt Brooks. I'm unsure of the grade.

Standing start down and right from these is V5 (perhaps your finish of 3?)

1. I think continues by following the right leading steep lip over the blackberries. Probably another Sutter FA.

Also on this same side is a long rising traverse a little further up with a hard sds and bouldery section in the middle V3...

I did a problem starting down in the cave and heading out left to a big move onto a jug... Prob some sort of variant... Its a freakin maze on that wall.

Problem 2 is THE line i reckon.

The holds above the drop off look like a stand start campus problem??

>with a hard sds

OK, I will show my ignorance and take a guess or two.

sideways downward sloper?
sloping downwards slapper?
