Eggshell, as seen on 5/16/2009. I think the falle...

Description 

Start on the arete with a scoop out left and a high foot. Get a higher portion of the arete, work the feet up to a good seam, control the barn-door with the left hand and reach for a horizontal crack near the top - finish with a top out.

  • If someone has a different name for this climb or knows FA info, please let me know. Problem didn't look like it had been climbed any time recently though so close to Crackerboy, I imagine it would be hard to miss...

Location 

NE of the Buttermilk Face problems and Crackerboy, just E of a clearing. The E part of the boulder has a massively scooped out area giving the boulder the appearance of an eggshell. Arete is obvious on the SE corner of the boulder. Descend off of the NE section of the boulder.

Protection 

Pad, watch the waist-high boulder pressed up against the climb

I first saw this problem about 18 months ago, and a few friends gave it a shot. I wanted to give it a shot last Saturday (5/16/2009), but a large tree has fallen in front of it. I think I'm right in saying that it is no longer climbable... I've posted a picture taken by a friend for reference. You can be the judge.
