Description

This is a small and unassuming boulder with only one developed line on it. this problem however, is fantastic. The problem is called "Secant Line" (V-7+) and it is no doubt one of the instant classics for the area.

Getting There

walk past the tavern wall, past the radio tower buildings and uphill through the craggy area. the boulder will be on your left. look for the featureless scoop on its face and the near vertical corner up it's side.

Climbing Season
