Can anybody tell me something about FAs on the north face? Are there any routes up that face? Sep 15, 2010
I was recently in the area and noticed a large potential for good bouldering. Has anyone else noticed this or developed anything? Most boulderers that I know would probably complain that it is too long of an aproach, but I was hoping that someone would've checked it out. Dec 30, 2003
