This boulder contains one of the best jug hauls on the Front range. Numerous variations start from the well chalked sit start jug. An excellent problem starts on the South face, takes the corner and traverses around to the West to top out on the jug ladder. Be solid topping out or step off--falling off the top would be ugly.
