Hiding in Plain Sight

http://www.climbing.com/photo-video/gallery/bouldering_in_columbia_california/index12.html

The link above is a to a photo of me on a new problem called Hiding in Plain Sight V7. It was taken by Dean Fleming of course, and is part of his featured climbing mag web gallery. This problem starts as a low stand at the base of the roof in the crack. And then climb straight out the roof  and then up the face. It is going to be a classic, and is one of the sickest lines in Columbia, it also has a near perfect landing which is also a plus. It is located near the main area of the Labyrinth. Follow the approach directions as for the lab main area on pg. 94 of the guide, but just after the “second faint trail at fork” you’ll drop into the Labyrinth itself and then immediately take a left up a not so obvious rock hopping path, go through a corridor, and then end up right at this boulder. Check it out next time your in the lab. Also I should note that the arete to the left is still up for grabs…

Update: The left arete was sent by Ryan Moon yesterday. It is called Dolphin Girl V6, it starts on the kickboard near the hiding in plain sight start, then busts out the arete. And it’s rad!
