|Hillside (aka Summit Boulder Area)
A great powerful problem that surmounts a bulge from underneath a small roof with a tricky topout. Sit start under the bulge with a right hand crimp and a left hand seam over the lip. Using the large right foot, float up to a nice rounded crimp with your right hand, then slap up left hand to a good sidepull. Work up slopers on the arete until you can stand up and topout.
There is no real crux, but every move is fun.
This problem is in a small cluster of boulders between Lakeside Crag and the Round Pond boulders just off the fire road. Head up the hill directly across from the Round Pond sign, just left of the problem Seeing Red. Downclimb to the right.
Pad & spotter - don't hit the log if you fall

The face says it all.
I will stick this move...
Without skin, even the first move hurts.

short and sharp, but definitely worth it.
