Description

This boulder is located at the far North end of the Grocery Store Walls. There are 3 nice problems on this rock.

1: Ascend the easy slab on the left side.
2: Climb the arete on the left side of the face w/out using the crack at all or moving feet around the corner (~V2).
3: Lieback the crack up the middle of the face, dyno for the top (V1+). Killer move!

Top out on all of these. There are great landings on several layers of pine needles.

"Colorado Bouldering" describes the center problem as climbing the arete, but using the crack for a right hand or feet (V1).

Protection

Nice landing again. Top out on this one.

Directly to the left of rockship are some fun over hanging problems. The one on the outside edge of the over hang I would guess at V1-2, the tough egdes futher under proabably go V3-5. There is also a juggy over hanging problem on the right side of this formation that is V0-1 and a couple of slopey traverses on the south side of the formation as well. Jun 17, 2004
There is also a great hand traverse problem on the slab that makes a very good warm up. Start on the far left hand side of the slab and work the ledge up and to the right almost to the arete, then reverse the route back left.Juggy with delicate feet. Sep 10, 2003
