Flagstaff

Posted on 16. Apr, 2010 by in News

Gabor Szekely has added a nice new V10 to Flagstaff Mountain, which I went up and repeated yesterday. The problem starts on a jug on the left side of The Butt Slammer Roof, moves to a small right hand crimp, and finishes with a big move out left, to a nice rock over. He called it The Botslayer V10. While the landing is somewhat poor, it’s a great power problem, the kind that are rare in Colorado and it’s only 5 minutes from my place. Check it out if you happen to be near Cloudshadow.
I also did an interview with Chuck Fryberger about Killian Fischuber.

    Would you say its worth checking out? “If you happen to be near cloudshadow” makes it seem like not much of a destination. Sounds cool though.

    I think it’s totally worthy, especially for Flagstaff. The landing is weird, the rock is typical, but the moves are great. I certainly had fun on it.

    especially for flagstaff? what is that supposed to mean, Jamie??? seriously though its a good climb at a cool area.. and very nearby. also, it’s very atypical for flag- only one pebble-ish hold on it!
