Classic Ibex Boulder Problems Destroyed by Bon Fire

Ju and Blue Flowers have been damaged beyond repair

Ibex is a famous bouldering area in Utah where countless people visit to climb the sandstone problems every year. This past weekend, someone lit a bon fire below the Red Monster boulder and destroyed Ju V7 and Blue Flowers V7+.

Josh Carbine wrote on the Utah climber’s forum: “Went out to Ibex this weekend and while there the second night woke up to loud crackling and as you can see some people camping in campers lit a huge bon fire under the Red Monster boulder.”

Other problems on the boulder include Bruce Lee V10, Big Gulp V8+ and Right Bouncer V2. Watch two sends of Ju below. Support your local access groups so they can continue to work to prevent further damage to access and climbs.
