  • Description 

    The Amendment is just above Boulder Falls 50 feet from the waters edge and 75-100 yards from the falls. The problem traverses into an existing boulder problem called Freedom. Start on the left side of the boulder and traverse on bad slopers into Freedom. Finish Freedom. Freedom is rated V10, with The Amendment being more difficult, so the V10/11 grade is given. Maybe easier, may be harder than V10/11.


    2 pads are fine.

    Hey Dan, this sounds cool. I'm assuming it's on the west side of the river uphill from the falls?

    Exactly. It is facing the river.

    More specific beta for locating the boulder. On the hike up to the Plotinus Wall (Lower Boulder Falls), there's a sizeable boulder at the base of the talus, just west of the creek with an obvious cave, facing south. Start in the middle of the roof and slap the lip, struggle over. For the V11 start, use Dan's directions.

    Great job, Dan. This is a fun and challenging line.

    In my opinion, Freedom is a V9.
