Excellent problem. If Tucson has a list of classic boulder problems, then this is right up there with the best of them.

Begin at the left of the undercut and traverse right on small edges to a crux gaston move and throw for the lip. Depending on one's height, this is a feet-off very dynamic move. Throw a heel and top out. Enjoy.


As you approach the A-frame when walking around the upper cave boulder, you will walk right by The Rails on your left before entering the A-frame. There is an undercut to the boulder. The chalk is evident and The Rails is the only problem there.


Pads are nice, but the landing is OK and not off the deck at all.


One of the best boulder problems I've been on in a while. Jan 23, 2007

fun. would be way harder and way cooler without the glued jug in the roof. also looks like there is a line starting just down and right from the gaston hold that finishes the same but is quite a bit more difficult. Feb 14, 2008

  • **CAUTION*** The far right gaston crimp is very loose and will break if someone pulls hard on it.

Was out there today, and the hold is definitely flexy. I think if used solely as a gaston on The Rails, it will last a while. If people are working the project(?) that starts down and right, and uses the gaston as an edge, pulling down and out, it will pop much sooner. Dec 28, 2009

i was trying a tucson version of the rail extension when i saw it flex. it would add a couple moves and a grade or two to climb exit right instead of to the left. Dec 28, 2009
There is a very comfy, sky blue, twin size mattress at the base of this problem which makes for a superb landing. You still might want a pad to cover the big rock when you throw to the lip. Dec 4, 2012
