The first move

Extraordinary problem with a not so extraordinary landing.

Start low on a good flat edge working left to gastons and sidepulls. Eventually the holds run out and a large span to a good jug out right awaits. From here climb around the corner to a easy slab topout.

Even though the landing sucks the climbing is superb. People with larger spans will find the crux span much easier (but still hard! V7 as Luke suggested). Shorter folk might just have to all out dyno to the jug or do what Chase did and use those micro crimps in between (V8 as Chase and I suggested).

Kudos to Luke on an awesome take down!


The condo sized boulder that sits precariously between two cliffs.
The only boulder problem or climb that I know of on this large boulder.


Lots of pads placed in imaginative ways. At least one spot is REQUIRED!!!
