This boulder has an obvious well-chalked traverse (Umbrella Traverse V2) as well as a few straight up lines including Satan on a Halfshell (V10).
This boulder, especially the traverse, can be used as a decent warm-up for other probelms in the Blackjacks, also for sport climbers heading up to Starship Enterprise, Triple Corners, and other Northwest Crags.
In spring the base of this boulder can be a mud pit. Look around there might be a tarp to put your pad down on off to the right somewhere... Don't rely on the tarp though, bring your own so your pad won't be covered in mud. Just remember to pack it out, don't leave it there.

Getting There 

It is the first boulder with an obvious traverse as you enter the Blackjacks from the east.

Satan's Sister Sally V10 7C+  NH : *Rumney : ... : The Umbrella Boulder
The direct start to Satan on a Halfshell. A superior problem in my opinion. Start to the left of Satan on a Halfshell with your left hand on an incut finger jug and your right hand on a sidepull. Throw up a right heel, utilizing two very small right hand crimps and a left hand slot that all take body tension and precision to stick. Getting your feet on the start holds, deadpoint up to a left hand crimp, hold the swing, and make one more crimpy move to the lip. Topout is cake... ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Hey I was wondering about the project to the right of Satan on a Halfshell. Are there even holds? Is someone trying it? I have done both Satans and was just curious.
