iMac V4 6B  CA : San Jacinto Mountains : ... : iMac Boulder
Start matched on the obvious black intrusion and make a big move to a shallow hueco then work slightly right up the face and then back left to finish near the apex of the boulder about 20' up. * This problem isn't listed in the Tram Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
