Periscope. A classic Grayson highlands problem


-Periscope Boulder-
Sit Start in the crimpy lines and connect into the rail. follow feet and hands across the protrusion, using whatever feet feel good and make fun moves to transfer and traverse to the next side of the boulder to your right. as you transfer around you will trend higher and up above the slab of rock that will now be under you. top high on good hands and feet.


The Periscope Boulder is located right before and off set to the front from the Ranger Rick Boulder. it is toughing the side of ranger rick boulder as well. Periscope has an ascending diagonal ledge feature with a rail behind it that forms a large geometric and angular feature that defines the boulder. look to the left of the protruding area and there should be low, flat jugs to sit start on.
This problem trends and travels right, across the protrusion via the constant rail. continue around to the right and transfer around to the next, right side of the boulder, topping out high and above the slab with a solid and confidant mantle.
