Description

Starting under the middle of prow, climb up and left gets you into big moves squeezing the bulge. Huge huck to the thank-god jug for the top-out. Committing, and bring the spotters.

Location

Along Tumbled Rocks Trail. Boulder sits about 100ft. straight up hill from the second house along trail. Just below Porkchop Buttress.

Was looking at this route today and found this video I took of Skyler on one of his preliminary attempts of this boulder in the spring of 2014. As he tries to hold the committing move high on the problem, he looses purchase and sails off onto only a corner of the pad-pile below. At that point he had so much momentum that it looked as though he would be continuing on into the brush-covered talus but was saved by Austin Lynch in what can only be described as a "Hero Spot". Despite the close call, Skyler pulled it together and fired it a few minutes later. Enjoy!

4 pads adequately cover the landing area and it's nice to have 2 spotters. Which hand you go to the jug with will determine where you will land if you miss, so plan accordingly. May 23, 2015
Amazing problem. Don't botch the last move! Apr 3, 2011

This has a very committing last move, but what a fantastic problem. Apr 2, 2011
