Climb the obvious boulder start left of Devil in the White House and right of Ethics in Bondage (bolt protects the boulder start to the Ethics route).

Follow the bolts on the face that lead to the two small roofs to a bolted anchor.


Left of the popular Devil in the White House and right of Ethics in Bondage (Ethics has the low bolt protecting it's boulder start).


If you are a solid 5.10 onsighter, then you can climb this with no gear to the first bolt (think high-ball boulder problem). Otherwise bring some gear to protect under the first bolt.

Intimidating, but definitely worth tying in! Moderate jugs with a few great confidence-boosting sections! Could be considered for the 10 range!
