Description Suggest change

Home to several short, high quality, moderate crack climbs on slightly overhanging rock. The boulder is periodically painted with a semi-gloss paint which masks the graffiti and makes the rock unusually slick for hands and feet.

Several Glue-In eyebolts adorn the top of the boulder. A few small cams and medium stoppers offer additional anchor possibilities. Scramble up and descend the climberÂ’s-right side of the boulder (class-3)

  • *Contributor's Note: all of the route grades are given using the YDS, simply because this is the convention that has been used by guidebook authors for over 20 years (Hellweg & Warstler, Craig Fry, Steve Edwards, etc.). Most of the routes fall into the VB or V0- category.

Getting There Suggest change
