Description

This is a cool warmup problem. It starts on a rail on the back side of the boulder on the main trail as you approach the main cliff. Sit start matched on the rail with poor feet. Move through a poor gaston to a good crimp and a forgiving lip hold.

Per Chris McNeil: Start with matched hands on a good edge and bad feet. Move up and right then a left gaston to a solid lip and top out.

Location

Locate a right-leaning rail feature on the overhung backside of the boulder, right of the steepest section. Climb 'er.

Per Chris McNeil: This is on the back left side of the block if your looking at it from the highway.

Can a mod delete this problem? It is correctly represented elsewhere on the page. Nov 19, 2010

So there is no confusion... the Stone Henge boulder is actually part of the main wall, on the left side. The problem described here is on the Approach Boulder and does not have a name (that I know of). Nov 11, 2010
