A burly, technical climb. Start from a sit with some crimps on the face. Some good footwork and a little luck will get your hands onto the arete above, and some better footwork and more luck will get you onto the slabby top. The crux is getting established on the slabby topout, but the burly start and the slab above are not to be taken lightly. Super fun!


Follow the trail that leads down towards the pond from near General Lee. It will be heading slightly left and along a hillside. Walk along the hillside for about one minute and look up the hill to your left. The problem climbs the face and arete at the hilltop


Pads and spotters. The crux ( for me) is the top out and a fall down the hill without a spotter would really suck.

This thing is awesome and worth seeking out, it's only a minute or two of walking past General Lee too. Landing is a little dicey depending on how you top it out. Friendly holds, big moves, that makes me a fan. Aug 8, 2015

nope, wrong boulder. it's about 8-10 mins from there. find the scoop boulder or general lee and find the trail around the backside of the scoop that heads towards the marsh. that will get you to lumberjack, next message, ezra, etc. Apr 5, 2010
Is this on the trailside boulder before you get to the method boulder? Apr 4, 2010

Fun problem. Not sure I really get the references to the slab in the description. When I did it, the intuitive way to top out was to rock around to the left after gaining the last good holds high on the arete. Looks like a much harder variation is possible, making the holdless mantle at the lip, but it seemed a bit contrived to go that way. Nov 10, 2009
