Description 

Start on the right furthest side.

Sit start on a crimp and a pinch, feet up high on a good rail down low. Fire up directly to a sidepull, or use a sloper out left then hit the sidepull. Anyways, work through the lockoff on the sidepull and go out left to the good pocket (maybe use a toe hook to get to the pocket). Drop into a crimp from here and connect/finish up on the project line that cruises straight up through the middle.

Location 

Dubbed the Geiser Boulder. A 45 degree, overhanging face with good holds all the way up.

It's found on the backside of Riggs' Hill. The boulder is found, in the picture off of S. Broadway, at the apex of the hill, on the backside, about 20 feet down.

Protection 

A pad and a spotter.

I built a small, level landing and moved all the big boulders out of the way - as well as clean and break off a good amount of holds working it.

Another great line and almost a flash. The sequence is fairly straight forward. Two pads(slightly stacked) offset the landing nicely.
