speaking of the Poudre ...

Minus the first couple moves, here's another problem we put up in YG last season.
June 17, 2006: Scott Neel on The First Thing, Young's Gulch, Poudre Canyon, CO. For whatever reason, all the other Poudre regulars have passed on developing problems in Young's Gulch. As of now, we've put in some 40-50 problems in Young's Gulch, a few of which are definitely worth the approach, especially if you are looking to get some mileage on Poudre granite in the moderate range or if the weather's crappy up canyon. As far as we've hiked in, we've found climbable boulders lurking in the bottom of the gulch and up on its slopes, so keep on hiking and poking around. Who knows what you'll find?!!!11!??111?

Is 'The First Thing' the name of the boulder or the problem? The only reason I ask is that I thought we named this line 'Iron Lion Zion'. This problem starts on the hold my feet are on (pic 1) which then connects up with the direct line with a long throw.

This pic was taken before you did the linkup, 3 minutes after the FA. Digital cameras are great for inane details like that.
