Precise and powerful compression on flat sidepulls and pinches. Start crouched at a LH sidepull and a pinch and follow opposition features to a decent left-facing sloper and a topout on slopey huecos (consider pre-cleaning as they sometimes fill with sand.)


On the boulder just above the main warmup boulder, tackling the steep overhang.


Pad, spotter

I remember hearing that name somewhere... can't remember where though. I'll remove it from the description. Jan 22, 2011

Kind of a frumpy boulder. This thing gave me the worst flapper I've ever had. Sep 28, 2015
