Description 

This is a fairly long wall that is really tall. Good flat landings make it friendly to bouldering if you have alot of friends and pads. Yesterday was the first time I climbed it, alone with 2 pads.


Getting There 

Follow the wall down the back side to the right of The Shoulder Boulder you will eventually walk right past it. It's up hill from The Sisters trail less than 100 yards.

It's a S.D.S.. Start with both hands on two small crimps/fakes. Heel hook and but horizontally straight up to a bad sloper. Pull a crazy toe hook and bring up your left had to another bad sloper (crux) and then toss to the final sloping jug form which you must gravel your way to standing on the top of the block!! A short, small burly line that is really fun. Worth the stop if you are either at the Slabs area and heading up to the Block Heads or if you are at the Block Heads and are headed d...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Traversing up and to the right from the bottom left(following the flake) seems like it would be fun, but it definitely goes into the no fall zone.
