Description 

The crippler boulder has the pick of the bunch of all the problems at The Dreamers.

The problems on the South and West faces are characterized by steep fingery pocket pulling, while on the East there is a slab with easier problems.

The 'Cripplers' are 3 of the sweetest problems around.

Getting There 

From the car head towards the boulders. The Cripler boulder is the first boulder seen on the right.

FA on the entire boulder was probably Rick Cashner, who's nickname is "The Crippler". He would go there all the time and then dragged me and Mick Ryan out there to document his handiwork..... all my notes are lost. I'm sure Mick has the facts tucked away in some folder.
