Comments: 3 of the bolts are next to perfect gear placements!?!?
The climb to the left has shitty gear and no bolts.

Comments: Anchor bolt is still missing. Don't trust those chains on top either. Both studs wiggle in their holes....

Comments: Both anchor bolts are trash. The studs wiggle like crazy. I wouldn't trust this anchor....

Comments: Maybe you are crazy? It's to the left (west/upstream). I don't remember exactly how far, but 150 yards sounds good. Just walk left and you can't miss it.

Comments: The first bolt seems useless and I never saw the 5th...
The slab is low angled, but dirty, featureless and exfoliating. The runout after the last bolt is the psychological crux of the route. If it were only a couple degrees mellower, you'd be walking. But it was actually a little scary. The pitch 2 corner is great fun, but too short.

Comments: Yes. You can rap from the top of pitch 2 with one 60m rope and once more to the ground....

Comments: I thought the routes here were fun but very short. The approach is one of the worst I have seen in Boulder Canyon. Very loose. Don't park right under the crag or you might crush your car!

Comments: This is a great climb... thin and sustained on good rock. It is slightly contrived, since you could stem, but it has very fun moves if you don't....

I heard that you nearly decked from the top of this wall. True story? Sounds like a good one...

Comments: Crux is at the 5th bolt. It's by far the hardest move on the route. Then a good clipping hold and another pretty hard (while pumped) move....

Did anyone leave a draw on the last bolt? I have it. Describe and I'll return it to you....

Comments: This is a fun boulder! If I lived in North Boulder, I'd climb here a bunch....
Besides the listed problems, there are tons of possible variations. There are so many interesting holds you could do most of the problems a few different ways (the easiest possible ways were hard enough for me). A nice easy right to left lip traverse is a good V0 warm-up.
I'm surprised this boulder hasn't seen more attention. It's sunny, scenic, and close to town with flat landings and mostly solid rock.

Comments: No reason not to solo this. But if you're too chicken, like me to down-climb Yodeling Moves, the anchor has a fat new piece of cord to rap from as of 10-31-12....

Comments: Great to do as 1 pitch. There is still enough rope to lower back to the 2nd anchor and a great stance. One rappel from here to the ground....

Comments: A #3, 2, and 1 is perfect advise.
Although you don't need the crack, I was glad to get a jam. But I'd recommend a little tape on the right hand... My skin got no mercy.

Comments: 5.5 at most. If you don't use the tree, the log, or a shoulder stand to get off the ground it's more like hard 5.11.

Comments: Fun route. I'd give it another star if it wasn't so short. One tough move getting past the 2nd bolt then fun 5.10- climbing to the anchor....

Comments: "You do not need to touch the guano."
I didn't touch it, but it was less than an inch from my face!
A little dirty but packs a lot of fun for such a short route.
