Chalk is unsightly to non-climbers. Please avoid chalking up boulder problems that are visible from the Chicago Lakes Trail, & in general, keep chalk use to a minimum. Brush all tick marks off after every session. Use containers that prevent chalk spills & if you do spill, clean it up.
Stashing crash pads is forbidden by the USFS. Pads will be confiscated.
Noise: this is a Wilderness area that is enjoyed by many, mostly non-climbers. The last thing passing hikers want to hear are f-bombs, iPod speakers, grunting, etc. In fact, most other CLIMBERS don't want to hear any of these things either. The easiest way for us to lose access is to elicit complaints from other user groups.
Dogs must be leashed at all times, they scare wildlife. Obviously, clean up after your dog.
Remember we are guests in this area. Be respectful of other users & the USFS Rangers that manage this area.
Begin with right hand on a 1 deep sloper ~6 off the deck, and left hand on a 1-pad deep, 3-pad wide incut crimp that sits atop a 1 deep diagonaling edge. Paste your feet on, make sure your spotter is ready, and huck for the obvious sloping rail (apparently there is short-person beta that involves the sickening crimps to the left). Tape over any bloody flappers, chalk up, and try again. This time dyno for the GOOD part of the rail. Once you stick the dyno, match on the rail, and traverse right along the rail as it curves up to the lip, to an easy exit.
Descend easy slabs on the N side of the boulder, traversing to the west (toward the creek).
