After a quick walk around, I decided to warm up on the beautiful compression lines of the Stunk! Boulder, going from the stand start a few times before moving on to the crouch. While I haven't really worked on the full sit start to the boulder yet, it's high on my list of winter projects.
I then went over to start working out the sequence for Constructive Winter, which I had intended to be another winter project. Conditions couldn't have been more different than when Brian established it back in February, but I was surprised at how quickly I went through it. After figuring out the individual moves, I was able to send it on the third full attempt.
Still having a good bit of energy left, I went up for a nostalgic run up Tourette's Razor, the first problem I ever did at Bushwhack and still one of my favorites. I then headed back to work on Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, which I had failed to send on a previous visit with Brian, during which we had later put up Westermarck Effect. This time seemed equally hopeless until I applied the same technique that has gotten me through so many other bouldering problems in the last several months: climb it like a crack. Realizing that the bump I was pressing my toe against had a slight protrusion above, I switched to smearing and torquing the edge of my shoe into the angle, and suddenly had a secure platform from which to make the move. From there it was just a matter of controlling the slopers to move through the topout, which was far easier than the initial move.
It felt great to already send two of the problems I had intended to get on a few months from now, and it really left me with awesome feeling about this coming winter. In the meantime, here's a bit of video from yesterday's fun...
