Terrible Lizard is a sharp and thuggish compression problem.

Sit start with hands in two large pockets and feet out right on the platform. From there, work up the slight overhang by slapping the right hand up while working a tough, left hand crimp, to a jagged jug. At this point, head straight up for a solid topout.

There is another, slightly contrived option, that eliminates the large platform to the right. This forces the feet out left for the start and likely adds a full grade of difficulty to the problem.


This boulder sits adjacent to the one which has the V5- and Before You Hueco problems. The problem is south-facing, and it is easily visible if approaching from the Diamond Boulder.


A few pads and a spotter. The landing is good, but there are a few rocks that may come into play.
