Pete and Jerome...the Patina Boulder.

Description 

This boulder is built into the hillside and is the place to go if you like crimpy face problems. The rock quality is killer and there are several unique hueco holds of varying sizes.

Getting There 

From the problem, Fusion, on the Weetamoo Boulder, head left about 30 feet, navigate a small hill bearing left at the top, and you will see this boulder on the right side of the trail.
