Description 

Directly south of the Captain Aslab Boulder, the Pequod Boulder (Captain Ahab's ship) is 10 feet away with a good, overhanging prow.

Getting There 

Park in the Bullet Hole lot, head down the hill and west. Captain Aslab is larger, so it'll be easier to see, but both boulders are located in the middle of the hill.

Traverse far right to left on the south face. The crux is at the far left before the dyno to the top. Press X, square, and R2 for the topout.Sit start (if a pad is under your butt) or hang low, grabbing a heel hook right away. Traverse left keeping your heel with you and your sequence, and finally make two powerful left hand moves, one hidden sidepull, and one tough bump up. From there, somehow avoid the barn door balance issue, and launch back to the right and up for an amazing dyno topout :)...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
