Putting the moves on "The Nipple"


Severely overhanging. Heel-hooks to spare. Layback to "the nipple," match; then throw for jug to the right towards the top. Top-out above dubious block below.


A 45deg. slab about 20 feet to the right; at the top of the Old Sandstone Area trail.


Bouldering pad. Spotters for top-out.

There is also a boulder 30 yards east of the nipple that has 5 or 6 problems.

Anyone know where the nipple even is? I have been to the Old so many damn times and I've never seen this boulder.

Down hill from the Aligator wall at old sandstone. I know you can see it from there if there are no leaves on the trees... 40 yards maybe?

I spied a potentially harder version of this on the steep face right of the arete. Anyone ever try it?
