One of the best problems in Ponderosa.

Start as for the Slappy Problem on an OK right edge and a sloping 1 1/2 finger pocket near the right side of the face. Make the first slap up left and jump to the square cut hold out right. Then instead of topping out, surf the big sloping rail out right. From the end of the rail work up the overhung face and arete to the point of the boulder. A somewhat hidden left side pull jug over the lip leads to a top out on some harder to find scoops and edges.

Turn around and jump down onto stacked pads on the lower boulder.


Starts on the right edge of the scoop on an OK edge outside of the scoop and a slopping 1 1/2 finger pocket just in the scoop.


Pads and spotter. The landing is not terrible because the easiest moves are over the edge of the boulder below and even though the problem is quite tall, having that boulder is a good thing since it raises the landing 6-8 feet.
