Josh on the Pocket Problem


The pocket boulder is found by going left and uphill of the vegan boulder for about 100 yards staying along the cliff. It has a short 3 foot overhang and about 5 problems on it.To do the Pocket Problem start low under the roof on the obvious jug doing moves to a couple more good holds. From here reach way over the lip with your right hand and grab the stacked two finger pocket and then launch to sloper with your left hand. Grab the jug and top out. This route 1.


Couple of crash pads and a spotter.

The "Pocket Wall" has been known since the early 1980's as "Winter's Warmth". There are at least 6 problems across and through the roof established yester-year by several old farts. It seems pretty strange that people keep claiming first ascents on this hillside. Many talented boulderers have thoroughly climbed out this area long ago. Go to Baldy if your looking for gems to claim F.A.s on.
