Description

Start sitting way low to the right of the obvious crack/flake that ascends the large hill-top boulder. A few burly pulls lead to very sharp holds, which finally become jugs. Whew. The rest of the problem is more fun...layback or jam the fantastic flake twenty or so feet to the top of the boulder and imagine you're Michael Reardon soloing in Joshua Tree. The easiest downclimb is off the backside.

Meh. Fun if you want to do Cream and give it a tougher grade, but the jug haul part is way cooler than the sharp traverse at the start. Aug 7, 2016

This problem deserves some more love. That crimp is sharp, but it's fun movement.
