Face Full of Brian, V8 – Satellite Boulders, CO

This boulder problem can be found on the back side of the “Captain Hook” boulder. This took me a while to find the beta that worked for me. There are a few variations to this one. Below is another video by Erica Block who uses some different beta.

  • Start with left foot and right foot wide. small undercling with the left and big undercling with the right hand.
  • Drop knee left to move left hand to the top edge of the sidepull.
  • Switch left foot for right and flag left to bump right hand to the sloper pinch.
  • Left heel hook by left hand and move left hand to sloper. Generate as much upward pull with that left heel, it helps to situate the hand better.
  • Keep the feet and got right hand to the undercling.
  • I kept my left heel while I went up to the crimp/pinch with the left.
  • Leg hug with the right and get the small right hand crimp on the face.
  • Left foot in the sloper and balance up to the jug on the lip.
  • Fist pump for the win!
