The Great Curve is a cluster of boulders 50 ft. North of Thin Crack. The main attraction is the smooth, finely featured uphill side of the sharply cleaved boulder slice. This boulder features a thin 5.11 face and a 5.10 arĂȘte.

Getting There 

Walk uphill on the trail past T Boulder and Thin Crack. On the right you will see a large boulder with a clean circular slice cleaved off its level end. The problems are on the north side of the clean slice that lies downhill.
