Here’s a vid from the guys over at Bouldering Guide’s Blog on their latest trip to the  Long Valley boulders in the PA forest.

Click here for the video. And here you can also check out the original problem Pocket Protector before the sit start was added as well as a beautiful line called Enchanted.

Check out the video posted on The Island.
