Description [Suggest Change]

Start with both hands in a high undercling/lieback flake and smeared feet, shorter people will be at a disadvantage here, to work into the undercling then make a reach over the lip for a grainy flake and finish with an easy mantle. An easy descent is found on the opposite (east) side of the boulder.

Rated V3 in the JT Bouldering guide, but this problem seems much easier than that and doesn't compare to similarly rated problems.

Location [Suggest Change]

This fun and somwhat unique problem is found on the west face of the boulder just left of center.

Not even close to V3 (especially if you're tall). Still fun and part of a great warm-up series if you hit the V-easy stuff on the other side of the boulder. Nov 23, 2015

I agree that this climb is only a V1, not sure why it's rated in the guidebooks as a V3. However, being much shorter does make it a more difficult. Dec 20, 2015
