[Hide Comment] Can someone please tell me where the down climb is for this boulder? I'm rather short and the way down is far. Is the tree the only way down? Mar 19, 2012

[Hide Comment] I think most people either downclimb the route (it isn't that bad + is good for you)or go for the tree route. I like downclimbing the face, as it affords a nice long warm up of going up and down and all around on the face Mar 20, 2012
