The exposure and rather wild moves make up for the lack of length. It feels like you are hanging above 1000 feet of air. Start left on the rightward rising horizontal. Boulder (or campus) half a dozen moves right to a huge jug below the first bolt. Fire past the second bolt and top out.


Right of Stannard's Crack on the ledge below the second overhang.


two bolts; no anchor; careful belay is advised

V4+ boulder problem that begins high enough on the rock face that a rope is required - crazy, beautiful exposure!

Cool moves, although the crux requires a *wide*'re likely to be shut down if you're shorter than approx 5' 8".

Probably only V1 or so after the first dozen feet.

Have fun!
