Description 

These two egg-shaped boulders (surprise!) host around ten short but fun problems. Most of the problems fall in the V0-V2 range, making this a great place to warm up.

This a great traverse! Start standing on the right side of the southeast face with a couple of head height edges. Traverse left, using only holds below the lip. The crux comes early with a difficult move to match a vertical seam and move left from it to a gigantic flake. After gaining the flake, the difficulty eases, but there are still a few tricky bits. Keep traversing until reaching the northeast corner of the boulder (basically, where the two boulders touch) and top it out. Don't use the oth...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
