Description 

If you are walking down the trail towards the Yeti boulder, this boulder is on the left about thirty feet before the Yeti. You should see a steeply overhanging cave with a chalked up (and flexing) jug at its lip. On May 12th, 2012, Jens Amundsen and I got real psyched and cleared the exceptionally overgrown backside to this boulder. We unearthed some old classics and, we think, put up a couple of new lines (although I'm the first to admit the possibility that we could be wrong). Needless to say, it was fun to re-discover this boulder. The backside problems are not to be missed!


Getting There 

From main trail, walk downhill. When trail forks, go right, walk about twenty feet, and the boulder will be on your left.

Low sit-start on solid crimp rail. A line of great open-hand crimps leads to an enjoyable rock-over and top-out. For some reason, I just love this problem. I did it over and over the day we cleaned the landing. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
