Comments: What and Who bolted the short "sport" lines on the boulder up the hill farthest formations up hill from parking. Looks like 2 sport lines that look more like boulder problems...

Comments: Sounds right. Just maybe I didn't start correctly. Left should be either lower or matched on start hold. I'm just hitting first sloper and my right I moved to the hold by head in pic.

Comments: There are I believe 5 new bolts. The first bolt is very heady for anyone not failure with the area. Once you clip the first bolt move up easier fun crystal slab through he next two bolts. After the third bolt you will get about 15 feet up and you will come to a horizontal seam that looks good from
The ground. Small to micro stoppers worked good for me but the feeling of pulling the bulge on this is quite scary. Pull the bulge and come to a good rest on the platform/flake feature. Place a cam and... more >>

Hidden agenda. It sits right on the cliff. One? Really good scrubbed problem that is a fun warm up! Same with the slab wall to its right when facing this unknown block. Has kind of a huge cavity / hue I feature at its base. You throw up to a small crimp feature with yo... more >>
