BETA PHOTO: The Melon Patch. Just like Lee says watch the flak...

Some areas require a guide.

Description 

Crux is at the bottom, then you follow jugs up the gently overhanging face.

Location 

This climb is on the west face and very hard to miss. The obvious tall line of huecos running up the wall facing the closed road.

Protection 

pads and spotters, very high with bad landing.

CONDITION REPORT 
As of 23 March 2011 the entire scary boulder is marked off with tape stating "no climbers." I think they closed the rock because some woman had fallen and broken her leg the day before.

sweet jugs, multiple knee bars including a no hands near the top, not that they are necessary. Beware the hollow flake at the top.
