DescriptionAcross the Undercliff Road from the Behemoth boulder is the Stained boulder, so called because of its red and green hues.
Start on thin sideways holds on the face. Continue up the face to the top out without using the arete for hands.
From Colin Best: A sit start for this problem makes the three-move maneuver v3. With the right toe on the usual start, a right hand on the sloped arete four inches above, and a left hand mantled on the the usual left foot start, back flag the left foot real hard and lock. Reach up for the lowest razor crimp on the moon shaped crack and bring the flagged left foot into the the left foot start hold with a drop knee. Bump left hand into the usual start crimp and work your way to the top. The back flag, lock, and crimp work only adds up to a few moves, but they are techy and fun.
