DescriptionThe Rotund is a left-to-right traverse that begins in a crack, sidepull feature, trends higher in the middle, drops down, and finishes on some funky, right-facing, juggy holds. The movement on this route is varied and interesting, the holds range from slopey, frictiony sidepulls to cool fingerjugs. There isn't any one crux, just a series of V2-V3 moves that culminate in a great pump.
LocationThe Rotund is on the fourth major formation (from north to south) at Biglandia. I find the best approach is to hike in on the west side of the ridge on an old road and then cut up and left to a lowpoint in the ridge that allows passage to the other side. From this obvious passable lowpoint, The Rotund is on the first major boulder to the north.
It gets morning sun and afternoon shade.
