On the east or bottom side of Out of Sight boulder is this Woodson classic. Crux comes at the bottom of the climb funky offwidth lead to slightly big hands. The climb is longer than it looks from the ground. I have seen Out of Sihgt rated 5.10a in some guide books. However it is a 5.9 and protects well.


Two turns before top of hill there is a climbers trail to the east side of the road. Trail starts in a big open area take trail 2 hundred yards down. Boulder is on left side of trail.


Use a #3 or 4 at bottom crux. A #2 fits great as you go to hands. Two # 3's will get you to the top of the crack. Gear anchor using mid size cams in the Horizantal crack at top of climb. Walk off back of boulder.

Such a fun climb, great movement, takes pro the whole way.

Trying to figure out how this is 5.9? If gold C4s are comfortable jams for you, you'll love this climb. Seems easier than some of the 5.8s I've climbed on the hill.
