Climb a short offwidth to a chimney/tunnel. Tunnel through this to the back side of the rock. You will be wiggling like a worm through this section, just don't get stuck! A whole lot of adventure here for a boulder problem. Highly recommended.

This climb will be harder to start if you are short.

I have not tried going straight up above the tunnel but it looks like it may be an option for the bold.


On offwidth rock, facing the road. This rock is located on the east hill of Santee Boulders. The rock itself is one of the larger rocks at Santee.


Long pants for sure.

going straight up is a must imo on this problem, good fun. You wouldn't think twice about it if you were standing on the ground :D

Try the traverse from the right for a fun variation as well.(Undercling)

Maybe strange and contrived, but has anyone ever successfully done a legitimate sit start to this?
