Start on opposing sidepulls down low, move up bulging arete using the good left pocket, edges, and slopers. Really nice problem.

Yeah, this problem is great. Every time I do it I wonder how it wasn't included in O11. Cool moves and holds all the way through. You can exit back left (maybe a little easier) or go straight over the bulge (probably more fun:).

I think it was spring 2004 that the Forest Service came in and basically clearcut Lizard's Mouth for fire abatement. After that, several boulders that were previously inaccessible because of seriously dense vegetation were primed. This is one of them. The Gangster Hippie boulder was another.

Ah, that sure does make sense (for both lines).
If the chaparral is dense, it is seriously one of the hardest (if not impossible) types of terrain I've ever experienced.

The name I have heard some people call this problem is "Nemesis" - V4 for the straight up finish.

This is the Squash Boulder and was put up in the spring of 2004. After they did the fire abatement project, the drainage changed and leveled out the base. There are several problems on this boulder which is right across from the Tomato Boulder in the Entry Way. Squash is the name of the V3 that is described here. Summer Squash is the left most line and is V2.
