Description

This boulder is right on the Inner Canyon Trail in between the Phallic Rock and the powerlines that lead up to the Juggernaut area.

Several problems can be done on this boulder including a traverse. The most fun is the overhanging problem on the right. The difficulty could certainly be increased for a SDS, but if you're lazy, this goes around V0+.

Protection

Exactly 3 BD knifeblades, 2 angles, and one RURP. A double portaledge is mandatory.

I think the overhanging slap move on Trailside is a tad harder than V0+, not including actually starting on the 2 lowest holds, which no one does. Be that as it may, the real burly problem I was working way back in the early '90s but never got was to start at the west end, traverse east over to and down into the overhang problem. It's doable, but I'm a fat hen. Sep 26, 2004

The problem in the picture below is actually a bit further down the trail. It's just before you get to the bridge heading West. The problem goes straight up the left section of the slightly overhanging rock. I'd say its about a V1 or V2 at the most. Kinda tricky sequence to start, but once it's dialed, you got it. Mar 3, 2004
