Description

A short distance down the road from the Black boulder, you will find a jumbled pile of three boulders. On the right-hand side of the pile, you will see two low boulders, with a third resting on top which forms a roof that juts out two feet or so above the lower rocks. Start with your hands on the sharp flake of the left-hand lower boulder near where it intersects the lower right boulder. After getting your feet up, use the holds on the roof boulder to top out directly above (crux).

Location

A short distance north on the Undercliff Road from the Black boulder and other Pebbles boulders.

Protection

Pad and a spot.

Tony, I had always topped the problem out with the awkward mantle top-out. In early September of 2010, though, a group of guys excitedly pointed out that you can use the left foot to top out quite easily. As I was showing my friends this new beta (we had been climbing it for years with the old beta), the foothold BLEW off the problem! The chunk has been sitting in my apartment ever since. Feb 29, 2012

A great short pump with a desperate finish. A large foothold out left on the arete just broke off, leaving one less way to awkwardly propel yourself over the top. Definitely worth a stop. Sep 27, 2010
