Description Suggest change

Another great spot to do contrived Morrison sequences!

This is a bouldering spot that is a bit more like caving than climbing. You have to climb down into a jumble of boulders to get to the start of the lines.And you have to be careful not to drag your rear over the same rocks as you climb up.

On the plus side, there are a couple of cool sequences you can do, and you can come up with half a dozen variations by declaring various eliminates.

All the problems would fall in the V0 to V3 range, unless you get really crazy with eliminates.

Getting There Suggest change

The Cockpit lies about 15 yards right of the tree slab, roughly midway between Nautilus and the Lobby.

Look for chalk and climb on down into the Pit.
