It definitely felt like spring out there this weekend ☀️🌿 (but with not as many leaves on the trees as in this shot). • Slithered my way up The Serpent (V10) in today's sunshine. • • • #squamish #theserpent #pebblewrestling #organicclimbing #noplacetoofar #hiveclimbing #webuildmachines #onwardupcampus #petzl_official #bouldering
Five Fun V4 Problems
Superfly: A classic Squamish problem in the Grand Wall boulders. Superfly starts on a small jug and heads up and right on shallow edges to a fun finish. Due to it popularity, the holds are a little polished but not bad.
Easy in an Easy Chair: Another all-time classic for the area,. It starts low and traverses right until the mantle. Fight your way up hard slopers with good heel hooks.
Trad Killer: A vertical problem with good crimps and sidepulls. The wave-like features on the granite make this a unique and fun problem.
Sloppy Poppy: Starts low on the One Black Dyke Boulder and goes up on good holds to a solid left hand sloper on the arete. Then make another long move to a sloper and the topout. Slopers are the name of the game.
Shots Fired: One of many great problems in the Apron boulders that you should climb. This one starts low with a right hand sidepull and left on a bad crimp. Hard first move leads to good holds and another fun topout.
