Description

Start at the bottom right corner of the Beautiful Soup boulder on an undercling and edge. Work your way up and left until you get into the start holds of Beautiful Soup. Do the moves on BS to reach the rail but instead of traversing off right continue straight up to the top of the boulder using a very small, slopey crimper.

Location

Located 1 boulder uphill from Alpine Club.

Protection

Bring lots of pads/spotters.
