The Puke...

I decided to waste my time putting up a traverse into Big Big Love, which adds 6-7 moves at about v9 into an established V7 at Great Barrington.  I felt like it the outcome was V10 0r V11 since it was pumpy as hell.  I would love to see a repeat but I won't be holding my breath.  The line is fairly obvious and the climbing ok, but when stacked up against the other lines on the boulder it falls way short. 

Next week I'll be in Boulder.  I heard that people were climbing at Mt. Evans and I had some unfinished business there so I booked a ticket since the dali boulder was dry.  Then two day later, the front range had a blizzard.  I guess we'll see if I make up there or not.

Here is the the new classic,
