Golden Streak V8 Problem?
2:17:41 PM
Hi everyone, does anybody know the name of the problem on the golden streak boulder that uses that sloper? I think it's around V7-V8

here's a link to thecrag topo, no V8 mentioned

Do you mean the slope towards the left hand side of this picture?

If so...taking the slope with your right and then rocking up and onto your left foot is maybe v6 or v7 , getting the slope with your left and then heading up high and right to a mono is probably more like v8

There is another line of opposing sidepulls ("velcro man") between "3 moves" and "MosFactor" thats also something like v8 but I wouldnt have called it "the slope problem"

Yea that's the one. The one to the left of the photo. Except I took the sloper with the left then a crimp to the right. Put my right foot really high and then went again with the right to a half moon crimp. Then stood up on my right foot to get a sloper below the jug before the right crimp popped. Luckily didn't have to use the mono.

So what's that problem called? It's well cool. I highly recommend it

if youre going to go out right to ll those crimps you might as well just to the descent route.

It is a great slopey hold though. The line going up and left from it is fun too and I highly recommend trying to go directly up to the mono rather than heading out right

Did the rh version in 87 thinking I was awesome doing a new problem on the gs boulder. We were going to call it something pretty lame. Mentioned it to a less Fallable boulderer who played back every move and a few others beside.

Moral: who gives a fck what it's called.
