Aaron James Parlier on Final Straw


A very rounded boulder that sits precariously perched atop two other boulders. You cant miss it. This boulder marks the top right corner of the stones and has several excellent lines with flat landings.
This is not Bouldergasm.
Certainly some have been done before us. If you did them please let me know so I can change the name/FA to you!
