Right side of boulder.

Description 

Unusually slabby and short for Las Conchas. The crux is an awkward move is just past the first bolt; sneak by this by finding small feet and sidepulls. Higher up use small but more positive pockets to summit the giant boulder.
Slippery when wet.


Location 

This climb is on the right side of the giant boulder in front of Chilly Willy Wall.

You can lower off the boulder to any side, including the direction you climbed it from.


Protection 

3 bolts to the common 2-bolt anchor atop the giant boulder. Long slings (as compared to quickdraws) are useful at this anchor.
