Fate Amenable To Change

When you want somebody to repeat your boulder problem, it's wise to name it after a greek god and give it 2 more v-points than it deserves. Double digits preferably. If you want your problem to be overlooked for decades, call it Blubber, sandbag it, and tell everyone it has a crux topout.

That's a shame, because Blubber V7 in Grover is a rare treat in the land of small cruxy boulders. This proud line is multiple moves of sustained difficulty requiring the full bouldering toolkit - heel hook, toe hook, slab smears, undercling, crimps, slopers, side pulls. As for the topout? The landing is good, and it's an extremely satisfying balancy rock over on double side pulls with only foot smears.

Hopefully with the topout demystified, the fate of this problem will be amenable to change.
