In addition to the new/updated landing, some new boulder problems have been established as well. There is an alternative variation to "Live Free or Die" which starts at "Evil Empire" and traverses higher holds to gain the original dyno sequence on "Live Free or Die". It climbs really well and the added hand movements probably add one V-grade to the problem. Also, directly in the middle of "Evil Empire" and "Live Free or Die" is a sick new problem put up by Keith Banta that climbs staright up the tall face on some really cool holds and some unexpected body positions and movements. Nice addition Keith, this is probably my favorite climb on the boulder. Keith got the first ascent on the stand start but has not been able to link the sit start due to some serious knee problems he encounters on one move in particular, leaving his knee in a locked position due to cartilage getting "hung up". I added the sit start to the problem with his blessing but started as "Live Free or Die" instead of "Evil Empire". This start was different than what was originally envisioned as the direct sit start, but is still full value.
