First moves.


The Stranger is an underrated, incredibly fun problem with excellent movement and hold variety. Start on low chickenhead jugs and pop right to a good sloper. Match. Switch feet on an excellent rail under the start, then move up to a dish. Bump left to a water groove, then, squeezing this, get your feet up for the final bump to a jug. Top out on amazing jugs, and reflect on the fact that despite its diminutive size and low difficulty, you may have just climbed the most fun boulder problem ever.


In the Spirit boulder area, just right of Spirit problem.

Fun problem. Note: There are several variations to this problem. The water groove on the left has two moves on it. One above the other.
