Moving out the sloper on Cherry Top Rip.

The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This innocuous-looking problem sits like a Siren above the trail to the Dali, luring unsuspecting pad-people towards its large, chalk-caked holds. ‘This looks like a good warmup….’, ‘why is there chalk on that hold?’ Famous last words before the extended bout commences.

Begin with a sit-down-start on the two lowest of three diagonal holds, above the right end of the short cave. Shuffle diagonally up and left to the obvious backwards-C-shaped jug. Hit the sloper out right, set your feet, and drive-by huck for the high hold, which is good if you hit it right. Kill the swing and top out easily.

Location 

This boulder is located just past the Seurat Boulder, along the trail to the Dali. From the Timeline Area, follow the well worn trail SW along the edge of the meadow, to a large pink boulder with nice-looking lines on its North face. Head right, around this boulder. The Seurat Boulder is the next significant boulder past the the pink boulder, located in the trees, with a beautiful vertical crack (Seurat) in its east face. From Seurat, follow the trail to the Dali boulder for about 20 yds. This boulder sits about 10 feet above (SE) the trail on the left. The problem climbs the heavily-chalked pink quartzite SW face.

Protection 

1 or 2 pads. Spotter is not essential.

I liked this problem, it starts off on a few cool crimps and gets easier.
