Start with you right hand high and to the right on a small side rail, and your left on a high far left finger lock crimp just over the ridge. First move is the crux on this problem. Make a left hand leap to a predominant crimp. Then match and mantle utilizing a small undercling you can get your left hand to. Short fun climb and by far the easiest one on the boulder....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

The names used are my names, and are for reference. I'm sure these problems have been done before, maybe not from a sit start. If anyone has any info let me know.
These may be problems listed as "finger banger" and "mr off the couch" as per rockclimbing.com, but I'm not positive

NDS thought your names were pretty crafty. I have been climbing here for 12+ years now and have always known this boulder as the Pharoah. Either way it does host some of the better climbes. V5-6! With the Sit. For sure. :)
Know there has been waves of climbers to come through here since the early 70s.
There used to be a whole other Cirque, with over 30 different problems. They were all blasted out when the Vista Sport park went in?
Still makes for a descent afternoon sess if you live coastal North County!
