Description [Edit]

17 Feet. This isn't in any published guide but it's a pretty fun problem. It's located right next to Bark Biter. Start on the small platform at the bottom and climb up the face starting with a hidden hold pointed to by the green arrow. Aside from the start, stay off the left arete. Using the hidden hold, probably a V0-V1. Without using the hidden hold will be a bit trickier, probably V2. Sorry for the vague ratings, I suck at rating climbs.

This spring we went bouldering and we found this place along with about 8 other people and i gave this one a try. Thank god we had like 9 crash pads under on that rock to fall down on. There are some very little edges to hold on to, plus its slippery and can be a little sharp.I think it was a V3- But do it if you make it up there, its a route to work on. Oct 13, 2005

That is a perfect description. I was having a hard time until I found the secret hold. You are probably better off just doing it with no pads that way you don't have to think about how you are going to land on the awkward slope... Oct 5, 2007

John and I found that if you put two folded pads next to the slab of rock at the bottom and then cover the folded pads and the rock with a larger pad (I have a Behemoth) it makes for a perfectly flat and safe landing. I bombed near the top 2 or 3 times. Jul 8, 2011
