new thread topic... Fix the Led Zep arete bolts and chop the bolts and holds on the Epoxy wall in case Sharma and Ondra want to climb there.

Wes, that is the boulder right on the north side of 88 just east of the hope valley store

Noah Kauffmans videos would be alot better without the crappy music and the encouragement. I have to mute them just to watch

EDIT: I should probably keep my opinions to myself

Yeah ron, I did a long wandering climb somewhere down canyon with my little brother in about '74. Not that start or climb, but it had some pretty good sections of off width and chimney, between areas of choss and wandering, which checked in at about 4 pitches and 5.9 or so. I can't for the life of me identify the line or formation anymore.

Hey Ron, The bottom line for me is This guy isn't taking a few rocks for personal use. He is taking them for profit from our lands what are we getting out of it? more parking

I tried to rally back up Leviathan Mine Rd one time to find the hot springs. Got the ex's SUV stuck and carried on on foot. No places to park that I could find. Almost got eaten by a cougar. Good times.

I just don't know which one is referred to as "Bertha." I like some of the music... and there is no doubt the dude gets busy with the boulders.

Bertha also has the retaining wall hidey hole on it's South side.

I thought Mama Cat was the more popular boulderer hang though.

Been to Mamma Cat countless times. Good boulder. Never that psyched on the other roadside boulders in that canyon.

You missed Big Bertha? Just down/up the road depending on which way you were coming for those Mama Cat trips.

It looked like there were some crimpy problems on Bertha besides the o dubs. I don't know much about the bouldering there though.

I found a cool slab problem across the river from the pullout/camping just up from the woodfords parking though. I think it hasn't been done but it's not something I'll ever do anyway. I'm sure if you're willing to haul pads all over creation you could find a lot of stuff up there.
