Recovering Trad addict

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Recovering Trad addict

The terrible thing about this addiction is that it can hit anyone and can be easily hidden from loved ones in it's early stages. For the trad addicts that can't go cold turky we give them a little hit in the form of bouldering, just enough to take the edge off. Although Gabe (sbaclimber) isn't far enough along in the program that he feels comfortable climbing without a harness, you will note he did only load up with quick draws, choosing to leave his serious trad gear in the bag. (Well done Gabe!!) Some people, like sbaclimber, may never fully recover from this all-consuming addiction that is trad climbing but they can still go on to lead full and productive lives with a little support. ( PM socialclimber regarding donations)

100x slab, v4 Flock Hill

Average Rating = 3.14/5 100x slab, v4 Flock Hill

Nicole working the 100 times slab. This is one of my favorite problems. It is as steep as it looks. You can work it for ages and not lose any skin or pop any pullies on it. And with the thousands of little water runnells carved into it, a beautiful piece of rock.

It's an easy problem with a bad landing but too aesthetic to ignore. probably around v1. The Dark Castle(lower left), Quantum Field(center) and Spittle Hill (back) stretch out at the bottom of the hill.

You walk past Spittle Hill on your way to Quantum Field. It's worth stopping though. At present this is the only field in Castle Hill Basin that you can buy a guide for.

Average Rating = 3.25/5 "Top Heavy" v3 Quantum Field

If this looks awkward, it's because it is! Lay back to the right up the crack, (hidden by my leg)swing back in to look for the tiny notch on the left for your toe, work your right foot higher up the crack and if you did it right, you can step to the top with dignity. The alternitave is the classic Castle Hill beached whale top out. Not pretty to watch but perfectly acceptable around these parts. Thats me about to keep my dignity, Detch is spotting, Shelly Fisher taking pix.

Detch getting to grips with Roundabout. This is trickier than it looks. You only have two features to use. The big hole in the middleand the slopey edge to the right. I have a soft spot for Roundabout because it was my first ever boulder problem. I'm spotting, shelly Fisher is taking the pix.

Average Rating = 3.40/5 "Left Headlight"v3 Quantum Field, Castle Hill

Tis me on the easy part of the problem. The crux occurs once you are standing up with a foot in each of those holes (one is obscured). It involves a high step with the left foot to smear on nothing in paticular above the holes while having nothing much to hang onto either. By this time You are 3m up. This line looked like it had plenty of good holds but as I got into it, I found most of them wern't too useful. Chris (Detch) is spotting while Shelly Fisher took the pix
