Squamish Seven Terrors

Matt Lucas penned a horror for your finger tips when he published the Squamish Seven Terrors on his blog. You’ll need good skin and better conditions to get through this circuit of “moderate” problems in whichever order you choose.

  1. Razorburn
  2. First of the Seven Terrors
  3. Good As Gold
  4. Cream Puff Dream
  5. Bad Day Low
  6. Old Git
  7. East Face (listed as An Hour Early in Squamish Bouldering 3rd Edition)

Seven Sevens After Seven

It’ll take some hustle to climb any seven V7s after 7 pm without a headlamp. Long evenings makes this a good June challenge even on a work day.

Tim Catcher was likely the first to complete the Seven Sevens after Seven challenge all on one boulder.

  1. Stand-up to Sit-down to Holm Boy
  2. Square Cut Low
  3. Mindbender
  4. King Swing
  5. Golden Boy
  6. Master Plan
  7. Hummer Traverse

20 x V5 Circuit

Inspired by Tim Schaufele’s 25 x V4 circuit in the forest under The Grand Wall, I set out to create another 100 point circuit. After a bunch of research and a few re-cleans of good but forgotten problems, today I sent the 20 x V5 circuit.

  1. Very French
  2. A Kind of Magic
  3. The Twist (called Twisted in Squamish Bouldering 3rd Edition)
  4. The Squeeze
  5. Smut Traverse

  7. Class Dismissed
  8. Fire in the Disco

Tim Schaufele published this circuit in the first issue of Squamish Climbing Magazine in August 2009. The PDF is still available on his site and contains maps and descriptions of the problems.

If you are looking for full value, be warned. Tim Doyle made it clear that “alternates are for pussies.”
