Description

This is a classic highball just NE of the Minturn Mile. It starts on a head-high edge. This has fun, powerful moves down low into a right-facing edge. It is definitely a highball.

Location

It is a giant boulder up the hill from Minturn Mile on the right of the road. It is a few minute walk.

Protection

A bunch of pads, but there are two bolts at the top also.

Standard start is the head height jug.
Sit-start is an extension added a few years ago by Adam Markert, adding a few V-grades. Aug 10, 2015

Does anyone know the correct start to this problem? There is a ton of chalk all over the bottom of this problem which would indicate a sit-start, but a video I found on Vimeo shows someone doing this from a stand-start off the big edge at head height. May 27, 2014
