Earth Boys is on the face to the left of the actual combination blocks and starts under the diagonally running crack on the left hand side of the face. Make a few moves up through good holds before gaining the big crack running through the face. Good hand jams can be used to traverse a bit to the right before pulling above the crack and clipping the third bolt and then using the crack for feet. Keep climbing up and over the lip to shared anchors with Dancer for the traditional finish.
An alternate finish ends at the anchor for Ring of Fire and ups the grade a notch with delicate moves to the right that can be a bit unnerving based on the pendulum swing fall potential. With either finish it is a great climb with good movement.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
