Description

There are ~six problems on this boulder ranging from V4 to V7/V8 (left to right). Generally good rock, getting better the further uphill you travel. The landing on all but one of the problems are excellent, but a crash pad is recommended. Nothing too highball here.
Check NPS for Closures Details

Starting from the far left and going right:No name V1/2 - this is around the corner. Start on an obvious flake/horn and go up to the slopey lip, then trend out right to some incut crimps to top out. Frogonius V3Dish Problem V3 - to the right of Frogonius about 4 ft. Kind of nondescript. Start standing up on some holds then go up on some more holds!Blake's (easier) Sloper Problem V4 - this thing is really good and is right in the middle of the boulder. Start standing up with a bad two finger scoop w/ your left hand and a BAD edge with your right. Move up to a dish/sloper w/ your right hand and a protruding crystal w/ your left hand, get your feet up and slap the sloper.Dogs V4 - This is a body width to the right of Blake's sloper problem. It climbs up the good gastons and sidepulls. Balancey and kind of hard. Frogs V7 - This climbs the obvious big belly more or less in the center of the boulder. Start standing grabbing a decent sidepull with your left hand and a weird pinch low w/ your right hand. Throw up and right to a small edge and then continue straight up via some small holds. Could have a sit start!Warm-up V0 - Climb the obvious groove using good incut crimpers. Harder if you start lower.Polywogs V6/7Polyhogs V5/6Hogs V7Travis problem V4 - this starts sitting down on the right-most corner of the boulder. Grab the right side of the Hogs rail w/ your left hand and a really bad sloper with your right. Reach up to a piece of junk with your right hand and go again to the top. Hard.

There you go! Hope it helps. Jan 28, 2004
