Description

This is steep with two pods to get through. It is mostly hands. Climbers with smaller hands will find the very top harder, as it is big deep hands. Lots of people lead this, there is even an anchor up top. It is probably the most classic boulder problem at Vedauwoo.

When the tree right next to this boulder was younger and not a victim of beetle kill, people used to climb down the tree to get down from bouldering it. Be careful now if you do this, as the deteriorating nature of the root structure on that tree now makes that a potentially dangerous situation which is probably best to avoid altogether.

Location

On the east end of the south side of The Nautilus, there is a big, freestanding boulder right off the trail. This right-leaning crack is on its overhanging east side.

Protection

Hand sized stuff, old bolts up top, or skill.
