Description

This is the massive boulder toward the top of the hill. The boulder boasts a great selection of problems from relatively moderate to very hard. Mostly highball. Bring your friends, and have them bring their pads.

Getting There

Coming in on the regular approach trail, this hill is the high point generally up and left. It is pretty unmistakable when you get there.

Does anyone know anything about the really difficult looking problem right of the overhanging crack on the big overhang? It looks like it would start with a high LH on a big flat sloper (slightly too wide to pinch) and RH in a seam at face level on the arete, or on a big cookie feature just behind it. Jan 31, 2016

Anyone know what that super mellow highball is, left, around the corner from the unnamed V5 crack is? or if the right side has been done?

Also if anyone wants to get out send me a pm...there's a few problems I would love to try but not without a second pad or spotter. Apr 10, 2013

I had a good play on this line the other day, felt V3ish, but it could be 4? I'd say Cape Ann 5.11 if it was billed as a rope climb. I added a new bolt for the TR set-up, so it is a) closer to the actual arete and b) at least one of the bolts up there is now shiny again. The arete/ slab at your back from this line is sweet too, 5.8 with arete and 5.10 if you eliminate the edge and just use the little face holds. I have often thought about bolting a few of the lines on the Cavalry due to the sketch factor of their landings (height and padability), but I fear I would be lynched. I do hope to continue replacing/ adding to the aging TR bolts on top if nothing else. Mar 3, 2013

Thanks! I probably spent close to 2 hours getting all the moves wired before pulling the rope and doing it, and it was still super scary. Mar 1, 2013

I saw the chalk on that the other day and it reminded me that I have yet to do that line clean (haven't even tried it in years!). Seems to me like it is a nasty landing to do as a proper boulder problem with that ledge at 1/3rd height. I'll consult some of the old ninjas and see if if all those TR lines up there have names.

Anyone know the name or grade of the route on the arete in the spilt of the boulder? Felt like it went at around V4ish, but I am interested to know more about it.
