Description

The G-O-T-O climbs up the middle of the triangular boulder north of the Corkscrew.

Protection

Multiple pads and a spotter. The landing is a bunch of logs and crap that has been washed up by the river.

I demoted the problem to two stars post sandy beach. It now requires a painful sit start. Not as much fun and maybe a little harder. Jul 31, 2010
The flooding this year has raised the landing about 12 inches, and it a perfect sandy beach now. No pad required, except to keep your shoes clean.

How about calling this boulder Land Shark, after the Lager of the same name due to the resemblance to the logo, although reversed. Jul 15, 2010

I believe this is a new problem. It is not in the book, and there was absolutely no sign that it had been climbed in the past. It is a deceptively difficult little problem. If anyone has information about this problem let me know. Nov 24, 2009
