BREAKING NEWS: 2-22-10
On a recent trip to work out the final moves of the Gunx classic “The Andrew Zalewski Traverse,” I came upon this. It seems as if there is an epidemic around the world right now of “famous” and “classic” and “bad ass” lines that have been broken or damaged. Recently damaged ultra famous boulder problems are as follows but not limited to: The Andrew Zalewski Traverse, The Beautiful and the Damned, Dreamtime, Fatman, Karma, The Mandala, and Witness the Fitness.
Details are slim, but it appears that the perpetrator of these events, our assailant as it was, has been eating too many blonde oreos in an attempt to “train” and has been destroying national bouldering treasures left and right. In his pursuit of bouldering fame and glory, he has been seen traveling with a rebuttal sign to counter responses that he has broken these problems. One source, who requested to remain anonymous, captured this picture of the vandal at a bar.
If you see this man, who is roughly 6’7″ and 260, please refrain from confronting him. He is armed and dangerous and is reportedly carrying around “huge guns” and “mad skillz.” If you do see this man, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the future of “The Andrew Zalewski Traverse” is unknown, future rising stars have reclaimed other vandalized problems. Recently Adam Ondra has repeated Dreamtime and we can only hope he will come to re-climb this timeless classic. Only time will tell.Read More
“In other Hueco news, FEMALE XX1 made the second female ascent of The Butterpumper on East Mountain. The Butterpumper was originally given V12, but since the kneebar was discovered it has generally been considered to be easier (though a consensus has not yet been reached as to the grade). With excellent beta from Hueco strong woman FEMALE XX2, XX1 climbed it in a little over an hour. Three days later she went back and repeated it from a slightly lower start, putting the knee in after she pulled off the ground, instead of before“
