Behind Cyclops rock is this awesome boulder problem. A sit start in a cave starts you out 10' of finger crack through the roof in the cave, to a tight-hands swing around the lip and then fingers, off fingers and tight hands lead to a funky top out that is for many the crux.


Mostly low to the ground but the topout is about 12' and a pad is probably desirable.

Possibly the most physically demanding boulder that I have ever tried Dec 20, 2016

A small-hands special? Felt soft for a Josh V4 to me--i.e., almost possible. Tape required. Coolest problem in the park that goes at v4 or less? Also unusually safe/lowball. Dec 1, 2013
At first this felt harder than V4 but unlocking an efficient sequence for the finish allowed it to be on grade, be creative with your jams. Apr 23, 2013

Great problem, but eats skin. Tape is a good idea. Dec 9, 2011

Fantastic problem, a must do. Different cruxes for different people, and multiple ways to do those cruxes. Many opportunities for advanced trickery or goes straightforward too. Oct 18, 2007

One of my all time favorites. Tape up if you're working it. Thanks to Mike Paul for the excavation. Dec 31, 2006
