This week's Friday nighter is from Deep Roots Media and it is one of the best looking boulder problems we have ever seen. We picked this up via Evening Sends, which is a great blog/site from Andrew Bisharat.

What's so good about this bouldering video? Well, the boulder for one! It really had us hooked. One day.......

It says on their Vimeo Page:

Crown Jewel:
One of Tahoe’s finest unclimbed lines, Crown Jewel, was sent by Kyle O’Meara this past summer. It climbs a perfectly clean 30 foot overhanging wall with sustained moves throughout. The boulder sits in a spectacular position perched above the Phantom Spires.

About Time In The Pines:
Over the past few years a select group of hard climbing Tahoe locals have been scouring the area, spending a ton of time under the big pine trees and secretly picking off world class boulder problems. The Time In The Pines series is a tip of the hat to the hard work that the select few have put in.

Agreed, I really enjoyed this! For anyone looking for more info on Tahoe bouldering, there's a great article in last month's Rock & Ice (issue 217). Good writing and some spectacular photos - well worth a read if...
