Comments: It's time to go dig, and to reenforce the flake on the face out left... Anyone down for some gardening?

Comments: Has anyone done the direct finish yet?... I'd be down to investigate it over the upcoming holiday weekend or into early December...

Comments: I definitely had a high left foot, on one of the Spectacle slopers, as per Max Monn's memory. I repeated it early this year during Nina's visit, and felt like it was about solid for the grade. It's definitely harder than V5 if you try going up directly via the blocky crimps.

But maybe it's more morpho for me than I'm giving it credit for? Regardless, it's a sweet line.

Comments: Derek has also tried and agrees that it's just not doable as is. I could see a shovel expedition at some point, but I'm waiting for there to be more interest before I bother.

Has anyone repeated anything else on this boulder yet?

Comments: It's a really fun climb, requires a bit of balance for the crux move, and should be quite popular... if anyone ever comes back here and climbs it.

Comments: All of the obvious lines in the first section have been sent. A pretty high-quality area, right next to the car. Nice work, Everyone.
