How's Your Mama?

V4, Boulder, 10 ft,  Avg: 2.8 from 4 votes
FA: unknown
California > Joshua Tree NP > Joshua Tree Bou… > Outback Bouldering > Family Boulder

Description

This problem starts a few feet over from the left arete on nasty crimps and polished feet, gaining the right slanting seam and following it until you can mantle over the top. Getting established on the face from the ground is a battle in itself. Taller people will find this easier than short folks.

Location

Start 3' right of the left arete, at an obvious crimp, gaining the seam after a move.
