Classic Problems (V0-V5)

Post by Jay » Mon Jul 06, 2009 8:24 am

We're travelling to Squamish this summer. We're looking for classic boulder problems below V5.
Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Er, I don't boulder, so no personal advice that really counts.

Easy in an easychair V4is good as anything to see what it is all about here.

Sloppy poppy is good at V5 and I'm spent... nothing else comes to mind.

not to state the obvious (which I will now proceed to do...), but thought about a guidebook? purchase in van or squish.


Perhaps the bump will help you out?

Grab a book, the list of good V5 and under is very long;
Trad Killer, crack head, hulksters humpfest, about 15 problems in the Easy Chair area, about 100 problems in the forest and maybe that many more in the north walls.

Actually screw the book. Walk through the forest and climb what looks interesting. Dont worry about the grade.
When in it out!!!!

V0 - Black Dyke Highball, Bob Barker,
V1 - Over the top, Unnamed V1 on Razorburn boulder, Largonian Bulge
V2 - Left Rib, Paperboy, Option B
V3 - Old & Serious/Young & Furious, Double Decker, Crackhead for sure
V4 - Skin Graft, Timeless, Child Abuse
V5 - It's about time, Tim's sloper problem, Wafer Thin

These are just some of my fav's @ these grades but the advice to walk around and climb whatever looks cool is probably the best advice you could be given. Forget about grades and sit down starts until you get used to all the miserable holds and crystals, remember that bouldering in Squam comes with a few simple locals rules: Use a brush, pick up trash (even if it's not yours), and please stay on the marked trails, o ya we hate tick marks too! Have fun
