Bouldering around Crown Rock

I convinced Justin to stay a bit longer Wednesday morning so we could do some bouldering. Made sense -- we had already climbed trad, sport, and top-rope in the previous two days. We rented a crash pad at Neptune and headed over to Flagstaff Mountain.

The Crown Rock area seemed to have a good selection of problems so we parked there and explored the rock a bit. We ended up at the Beer Barrel Boulder and a few other rocks west of it. We worked on a good lieback problem, then a thin problem that Justin completed but couldn't top out on (and I couldn't even start). Then we found a nice traverse that took the rest of the morning. Justin finally sent it after we took turns figuring out the right sequences.
