Last weekend my good friend and powerful climber, Franquois Marcelle visited while on his way across the country. I took him bouldering at OMG boulder. In the space of about 5 hours he put up three problems that he claims will stand at V9, V11 and V12. There is one line that he thinks could go at V13 or V14. He is so excited that he is planning on talking to Fred Nicole about it when he sees him next month. So stay tuned for more info and more route beta.

Mike, this looks pretty real to me.

If the rock is solid, that looks like it does have potential for some v4+ stuff. Also Mike, I don't blame you for thinking this is a troll. With all of them posting lately it's hard to tell what's what.

if this boulder were on the moon you'd have a lot of v4+. Some of the lines on the right side that don't take the steepest longest lines may be in this range. But like poncho said, bring some big guns if you plan on trying to send the proudest of the lines!!

"I've got the magic stick. . . . The magic stick"

That's how everything is found. With my magic stick!

Seriously though, if you want to find the boulder just ask the cow. It's always just hanging around. I mean come on. It's only got 3 legs. :wink:

I will be there saturday. Also, if anyone is having a hard time finding outdoors and the three legged cow isn't hobbling near enough to the road to see it, you should probably go buy yourself a good rock hound and forget that magic stick schtick.

Thats ok photon, this boulder is far too hard for you. You are nuts if you think that you can match the amazing ascents of King Pancho. Bow to me, for I am great!

I found your 3-legged cow, it wouldn't tell me which way to go
so I pulled it's adrenalin gland right out of it while it was chewing
its cud and . Near the end of its last glorious moo it tripod pointed
like a English Setter right towards....
I should think the cow juice should help me float that slab any which way

Yeah, we went there yesterday. It was frickin hard. The pictures on this site make the boulder look like a juggy version of that giant Evilution Boulder. It is not. The OMG is a steep, steep roof. The main line out is at least V8, maybe harder because we couldn't make it to a blank section that is prob. the crux.

Thats because it's not a troll, why don't you get off the band wagon and stop giving every thread you read a troll rating.
