Description

Climb 14 feet on thin face holds avoiding the ledge to the right. The ledges to avoid have red arrows pointing to them in the picture. Spotting someone climbing below the upper blocks is no problem, but if you fall above that you will have some problems landing as there are small jagged boulders on a small hill directly behind you - likely to be an ankle snap. One of my favorite boulder routes.

This is not the most intuitive climb... I mean, there are lots of holds around, but you don't need most of them, BUT it can still be rather cryptic (especially for the grade). At least that's how my relationship with this climb unfolded... Couldn't get up it until I saw those photos Chris put up. Might also be a little harder if you're short too. Aug 28, 2014

There are several problems/variations and eliminates on this boulder that I have been doing for years including the left arete. I don't believe any of them were given official names. Just boring refenences like the 'left side' or 'go straight up'. Apr 28, 2012

John did a cool climb on the slightly overhanging left Arete of this boulder. Looked liked someone was working it previously. Anyone know what that is? Probably around V4. Apr 27, 2012

For what its worth - Below this boulder there is a large boulder that probably stands only 4 feet tall and is about 12-15 feet wide that is undercut on the parking lot side. On the parking lot side there is a low ball traverse going left to right and topping off on the right end. I called it 'Little Lia' after my second daughter in 2001. I did several stupid little straight up and over problems too.

I take my girls to the north shore all the time because its so convenient. I'm always doing varitions/elimiates and trying to find problems. The new climing mag came out with an article on low ball traverses and I discovered this problem. Just fight to keep your feet on and your backside out of the dirt! Jul 20, 2009
