BETA PHOTO: The Walrus Boulder


From the Yosemite Cluster, spaced out in an aproximate 900 foot line heading east, is a series of high quality big boulders. This is the last one of the line, about 400 feet to the NE of the Mowgli Boulder. It is aboute 20 feet tall.

I put up a handfull of lines here about 6 or 7 years ago, so they likely need recleaning. There is lots of potential for more good routes on it, some pretty hard and highball.

Getting There 

From the Yosemite Cluster, head roughly south west for a hundred feet or so, then at Ward's Arete bear more easterly. You will pass a handful of boulders just out of eyesight of each other, including a very highball face with horizontals, then one with a nice low horizontal crack, next the Brilliant Boulder and then this one. To get to the Mowgli, head to the right, crossing a stream and you should see it through the leaves.
