  • Description 

    Tabula Rasa, or Latin for "Blank Slate," is a fitting name for this seemingly bald shield of rock that has just enough grips (and enough texture) to yield an awesome boulder problem.

    Tabula Rasa climbs straight out the blankish, overhanging orange panel of rock directly above the start of Hunting Humans, about halfway between the Underdog Cave and the Anacostia Wall, moving up crimps and sidepull pockets to an obvious letterbox jug at 12 feet.

    Start in the horizontal and cross into a deep, incut flake. Punch left, then start slapping up the first half of the bulge. Powerful moves, with your feet pasted left (the crack/ramp features are on for your feet) lead to a big bust for the letterbox. Grope high over the lip into the black rock to finish.

    Traverse left (once you're standing above the lip) and step off.


    Crashpads, spotters.
