The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber Details

Description

From a sds under the STEEP roof, begin with sidepulls below the obvious sloper, pull on, get the sloper with your left hand and bump your right hand to a higher undercling. Make a long span to the lip with all kinds of tension and tricky footwork, match the lip, slide left and go for a good edge, holding the swing. Roll over the lip and dance up the slab to the top.

Location

This problem starts under a steep roof on a boulder approximately 50 yards uphill from Seurat. Walk uphill and slightly left until a short but steep roof/overhang facing downhill comes into view. That's it.

Protection

A couple pads and you can work it all by yourself.

I heard a (foot?) hold broke on this. So, I returned Oct./Nov. '09 and had a look. Didn't notice any foot biz, but the crux right hand, what used to be a very small 2 1/2 finger pinch is now a deep (relatively speaking) 3/4 finger slot. I thought it odd. Probably V12 now.
Also, this begins from underclings. Mar 14, 2010
