SLS Boulder:

A beautiful climb. I personally love this problem, and its one of my favorites in the park.

Under the SLS roof, exiting to the left:

Sit start in the back of the aggressive roof on two jibs for hands, on the low portion of boulder 3.5 feet off the ground. heel hook.
move right to match a nice comfortable pinch block. from that block, trend left to a vertical pinch for a match. move left to a crimp, and link more crimps trending left out of the roof to gain a distant slot/jug. establish feet to reach the high knob and to top out through solid hands and feet.

-Note of interest- Word has it that Travis Tweed, Joey, and their friends decided the name of this boulder problem when they first meet me a few summers ago while bouldering on the LRT. They all thought (possibly still do) that I was a "Nancy". When I asked what Joey wanted to call this boulder problem (I had just learned he had climbed it in the 90's while I was still in elementary school honing my climbing skills on the jungle gym) he laughed and said; I guess I'll call it "Nancy with an E"... I learned the "history" behind this name a year later... Its now my favorite problem name in the park!


on the SLS Boulder:

Walk down the LRT loop past the top lookout, past the room where nexus is, past the sharp curve, and past the Mouth-of-Wilson boulder... once you pass the MOW the trail turns to the right, in front of the Mike-n-Ike boulder. Pass Mike-N-Ike, and to your far left will be another boulder called the Pit-Fall Boulder. Continue down the trail a few yards and you will see a huge impressive roof with a handsome series of horizontal pinches... this is the SLS Boulder. In the back of the boulder should be a low opening that leads through to below the Pit-Fall Boulder.
