News link: The Bishop Bouldering Blog has reported that Paul Robinson sent his long-time project at the Buttermilks in Bishop this morning. Robinson is suggesting V16 for this problem that sits on the Grandpa Peabody Boulder, just left of Evilution (V12).

Many have claimed at least V15 on this line, but Robinson is suggesting V16. The physical difficulty is only enhanced by the highball topout. Wills Young describes the problem his Bishop Bouldering Blog:

“This extreme problem with a crux move to gain and dyno from a small left-hand pinch at standing height, was disregarded as near-impossible by many top climbers–with only a handful ever sticking the dyno.”

More words and photos to come soon. Footage of the send will appear in a Big Up Productions video in the 2010 REEL ROCK Film Tour.
