On the left side of the road across from the Poison Oak Crack, one will see a giant boulder with a couple of steep sport routes on the face. The boulder itself is split into two via a superwide crack known as Big Grunt. This sport route runs up the center of this steep and super thin south face.


5 bolts, bolt anchor

There was once a knob on this climb that probably made this route go at the given grade. However, today that knob is long gone leaving only a tiny crimp in its place. Using the crimp this climb is much harder but I can't speculate on the grade.

All the bolts on the top have been replaced by ASCA.

I think 13a with the crimp. I would also believe 12+ since it is at Woodson. Very fun though, worth some time.
