Description

This was one of the very first routes I did at Carter Lake some tens years ago when I first started bouldering. I highly recommend this one for beginners as the moves are fun, the top out high enough to feel like a route, and the ground level if things don't work out as planned.

Start on the ground and figure out how to get your feet off the ground using less than ideal edges in front of you. Once you're "climbing", fire for the wonderful, lone edge out on the face. This is the crux. Once you have the edge, reposition and fire for the bucket edge at the base of the crack. Mantel (crux #2 for beginners!).

Stroll up the left leaning crack and watch the ground get further away - ooh! - a fine, flat topout!

Location

Right of the SW Crack on Lone Star, on the wall after the break.

Pad for the start.
