DescriptionThe Tuna is relatively obscure compared to the rest of Autumn Area's boulders and blocks, but its easily located. Tuna is long and ranges from medium in height to short. Its a long, ledgy boulder with overhung portions and fun top outs over solid landings.
Getting ThereThe Tuna Boulder is a smaller boulder, but the lines are fun and its length allows for 5 fun problems with the possibility for more.
continue a few yards past the Autumn Boulder and the Jet Boulder, past the massive fallen hollow tree, and look deep into the forest to your left. you will see a small unassuming boulder face (that you may otherwise second guess or walk past). this is the Tuna Boulder.
This problem works up the left side of the leftmost portion (excluding the far left portion with the protruding block of slabby stone)of the overhanging boulder face under the boulders tallest point.
Sit start on the lowest possible pinchy right angled ledge block (very low). move up off the start to a long, good, separated jug. through for any optional incut edges and crimp or go big into the deep incut slot. blast a fun dyno to a flat loaf jug on top of the boulder (tricky if you're short). engage the tricky top out.
