Description [Suggest Change]
This is a beautiful overhanging right leaning splitter wide crack. You can pull on the bottom edge like a rail or stack. You can do it right side up, but upsidedown seems to work a lot better. Once you rock all the way around the corner top out the easy slab to the apex of the boulder. A lower, logical, and very recommended start is on the bottom of the backside of the boulder. Start on two hands by the little tree and then work your way down around the corner and then back up. This start goes at V6 or V7. Bizzarre and beautiful. The name was inspired by the Shel Silverstien song "Boy Named Sue".

A couple of pads are nice because you will be upside down for a good ways and it's not super short.
Location [Suggest Change]
The best way to get to this problem is to take the trail that runs along and to the north of the three Blairs. After the trail bends right (south) and goes down hill, keep looking to the right to see this distinctive boulder about a hundred yards off the trail.
