Potential 5.14d FA In Rifle By Matty Hong

Rock & Ice has the details on Matty Hong doing the FA of a route Joe Kinder bolted and left as an open project last summer in Rifle, CO called Bad Girls Club:

What makes Bad Girls Club difficult is that it is stacked with difficult boulder problems, culminating with a V-double-digit boulder problem right at the lip of the 100-foot cave. Whether the mythic 5.14d grade will hold remains to be seen.

    Why are certain moves of climbs called bouldery or boulder problems, is a hard boulder problem called climby? Can’t hard moves just be hard moves ?

    It’s not the climbing., it’s referring to hard cruxy sections separated by rests or easier climbing

    I meant to say it’s not the individual moves…it’s the sections being called bouldery
