Loren, Bridget and I made it out to the Neat Rock Boulder in the Madison Valley yesterday. They were only in town on Sunday and the forecast didn’t look good but we went out anyways. It was a bit chilly warming up in the morning, but it slowly turned into a perfect day. The sun popped out every once in a while which was great to bask in, but not long enough to heat up the slick rock. We did a sweet little circuit on Lolo’s old stomping ground hitting up most of the classics. I think I’ve said this before, but y’all should really hit up the Neat Boulders if you haven’t. It’s not the largest area, but there’s some real gems out there!
We finished up the day on the Butterfly Effect, a classic two-mover V5/6 that Loren put up years ago. While we were trying it I joked to Loren about doing a variation going up and right avoiding the jug finish of the Butterfly Effect. Upon further inspection, it actually went! I was able to decipher the moves and put it together just before we called it a day – the Lolo Effect V6, named after the man himself.
