Kevin's new OW invert

Great day out exploring new stone on Saturday. Always interesting what you find...the Boulder Batholith seems to give and give, and the more I wander, the more I want to see...




After wrapping things up on the Bowling Pin Arete, we stumbled over to this overhanging flair...starting on the low tooth, Kevin quickly sent and I also gave it a lap. A short shuffle to some nice Butte holds for the pivot...though the finish has a good amount of blue collar to it. The extended start should bump it up a notch...hands go quickly to off fists/stacks, making you want to invert before the tooth...should prove to be interesting.


You can see the extended start in the background



















This invert now bumps the list(Invert OW Boulder Problems of the Boulder Batholith) to over 50...perhaps it's time to revisit that list...a fingers or hands list could be interesting too...or aretes, dihedrals, projects...thoughts?

Hope y'all are enjoying the spring melt.

Cheers!
