Pure bouldering, straight forward big pulls between OK holds. Used to have a tree below it that you could start standing on, now you need to stack pads for the original start or the low standing start is solid V9.

Start with the left on a sidepull with a good thumb at the top and the right on an edge. Make a long move up right to a small edge then hand foot match, you have to pull your thumb off and put youor foot where it was, and pull through to an OK pocket in the back of a depression. Top out slightly right, not as easy as you want it to be.

The lower start involves some sidepull and undercling moves to get to the high start.


On the far right side of the bulging wall right of Nat's Traverse from a high start.


Pads and spotter, the problem gets pretty high.
