BETA PHOTO: Boulder A as seen from the trailhead.
This relatively large boulder hosts several problems that all climb on a variety of knobs. The problems on the uphill face make for a couple of nice warm ups while the downhill face has some nice taller problems that are pretty technical. The rock outside of the knobs is quite grainy, particularly lower on the boulder.
See picture. You can easily see this boulder from the parking lot as it is the tallest boulder just below the first flat area on the ridge and is right on the sky line as viewed from the parking lot. You may want to take a trail up the ridge that is further north from the first main one or cut off of it pretty quickly. There is a descent trail that runs across the ridge just above this boulder so it is likely that you will first see it from just above when you get to it.

A great warm up problem on fun knobs.Climb the knobs up the left margin of the face, they are all nice and friendly. The feet to starts are a little grainy but after that you are only on the knobs.You could climb a couple of eliminates on this line that stay on either side of the blunt arete thta would be slightly harder....[more] Browse More Classics in NM
