Description

Climb the offwidth crack using hand stacks to gain a solid hand jam and reach the chockstone. Once standing on the ledge continue up the face (easy climbing 5.7) to gain the top.

You can always opt to tunnel through to the other side if you don't feel like committing. You will be wiggling like a worm through this section, just don't get stuck! A whole lot of adventure here for a boulder problem. Highly recommended.

This climb will be harder to start if you are short.

I have not tried going straight up above the tunnel but it looks like it may be an option for the bold.

Location

On offwidth rock, facing the road. This rock is located on the east hill of Santee Boulders. The rock itself is one of the larger rocks at Santee.

Protection

Long pants for sure.

going straight up is a must imo on this problem, good fun. You wouldn't think twice about it if you were standing on the ground :D

Try the traverse from the right for a fun variation as well.(Undercling)

Maybe strange and contrived, but has anyone ever successfully done a legitimate sit start to this? Apr 6, 2009
