Shrimp

Postby boissal » Fri Jun 03, 2011 8:27 am

What's up with that problem? V3 with star in the bible but holy butt-dragging back-scratching gigantic first move!
Any of you crushers have beta? Or is the beta in the name and you can only do it if you look stunted and malnourished?

Also, I vote for going and padding the crap out of Tom's Problem next week before going to the Farside. Rob and Sev, I'm looking your way.

I'm down, but only if we also try wriggly worms or whatever that thing is called to the right of it.

Which one is shrimp? I dont have the book handy.

The short problem that starts on the L of the Worm cave on top of the massive slab. There's a massive jug at chest level (sit start on top of the slab) and a good crimp, like, 13 feet away. Then a mantle. Or for me a bruised ass/shin combo.
Good problems up there. Tom's my new favorite line in the canyon.

Ohhhh that thing. It's doable, and I'm not tall. I do remember being slightly afraid of the potential for missing the throw and rolling down that bigass slab.

For more fun stuff, keep walking west of toms past where you'd head uphill for the obelisk, and there's a boulder with 2 or 3 really quality easy problems on it maybe like 20 feet further. Cool shit.
