Description

WARNING! FRACTURED ROCK ON THE LIP OF THE BOULDER! Please read comments below for more information!

Start out matched on the low sloping rail. Figure out how to get your ass off the ground, and climb up the arete and out the roof

Location

Basically this is the first real problem you come across on your left, heading up the trail. Right after you come around the corner up the rock staircase, head up the steep dirt trail for maybe ten more feet. You really can't miss it.

Protection

A couple of pads and a spotter for the moves out the prow of the arete would be nice.

Fractured Lip!

Per Donn Ketchum: I grabbed the lip and felt the vibrations. The lip has a fracture that circles a chunk big enough to crush someone to death. While on top, I hit the boulder with the side of my fist, and everyone was shocked at the difference in the tones. The rock will release at some point.
