One of the better boulders in the area with lots of accessible classic problems for everyone from V3 to V8. The boulder got its name from the red lichen it was covered in originally.

Getting There 

From the Lava Pit walk up stream and slightly uphill passing a lone problem (Four is Cosmic V4) and winding through the trees to the base of area with two boulders next to each other suspending a third boulder

Tick Tick Boom V3 6A  MT : Gallatin Canyon : ... : Explosive Boulder
The route to do on this boulder. Start at the base of the prow on a left hand jug and a right hand edge. Crux move up to another great incut and then out to the jug at the end of the overhang. Climb up the prow on crimps and top out. If boulder problems can have exposure this top out has it, because you top out at the end of a knife blade prow!...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
