LOC - Scrappy Boulders

Inland area with no wind protection. 

1. A.W.P. V3
Go up the blank slab. More fun than it looks. Do it with hands to the left or to the right. One way is harder. Hehe

2. Skwishy Tuna SDS V3
Sit under the loose rattly jug, pull on and go straight up. Good problem in and of itself. Good warm-up for The Potted Plant Expert.

3. The Potted Plant Expert V6 SDS
Start way down right in the crack, pull fun moves left along lip and top out straight up as for Skwishy Tuna. Awesome.

4. The Washboard V0
Straight up jugs from standing

5. Corner Warmup V0
6 Feet to the right of the Washboard, climb up jugs on the short arete on the corner. Also works as a sit start.

15. Gastropod V1 SDS
On the back of the boulder, from jug shoot to lip and top out. Bonus points for beached whale manoeuvres.

Small Cube

6. The Green House Expert V2 SDS
Start as for House Plant Expert, traverse left and up face. Be aware that feature flexes.

7. The House Plant Expert V2 SDS
From big rail, move up and right on sidepulls.

The lower graded Problems on this boulder are indistinct and a bit contrived. Multiple variations are possible.

9. Germinate V0
Start on two small crimps in middle of the face and climb the slab

10. Aquaponics V4

11. Thunk V0
Climb face with high start. Not really a discrete line, more of stand start variation on Major Payne SDS.

From crimps move up to progressively better holds. Hard start for the grade. Lots of variations.

13. Heuvos Grande V6 SDS
Start left hand crimp sidepull, right hand in crack and hug your way up the arete to top out on jug. A bit contrived. Do not fall from the middle.

13. Better than a kick in the nuts V7
Start underclinging, paste feet on and go up face.

Quintessential Nova Scotia pebble wrestling. Don't let your friends see you on this one. (FA Ghislain Losier 2003)
