Description

This problem is on the "World's Greatest Boulder" or "Book Boulder", which is found on the south of the trail a little beyond the turnoff for the Book. Kind of a long boulder, size and shape of a whale, with another smaller boulder south of it. Sme good problems, but far from the worl'ds greatest boulder. The NE corner is a great sloper problem, which can be made a bit harder with a sit-start, or easier if one busts left to a good hold near the top instead of slapping all the way up the arete.
