Description

This problem starts on the two obvious sidepull crimps on the face that's left of the V2 arete. Move left off the crimps on tiny feet into a good lefthand edge, hit a righthand slot and from there you have two big moves straight up the face on decent holds, some footwork, and to the lip. Very nice problem.

Location

This boulder is located right off the right side of the trail about 60 yards before you walk up to Halley's Comet arete. As you approach the Upper Satellites, there's a 10 foot+ tall, long, blank wall off to your left, if you stop there and turn right off the trail and walk 15 feet, you'll see the Hobo Boulder.

Protection

Two pads.

I personally didn't use the rail as I feel it is more fun without it, but it is most definitely part of the rock. The first move is pretty tough for shorter people. I was with someone who is about 5'6" and couldn't get the move neither with or without the rail, and he climbs much harder than me. Regardless of whether you use the rail or not, I still feel the crux is later on, either on the topout or right before it. Your foot might pop 4 out of 5 times trying to get it on the wall to make the first move, but once you stick it, it is well worth it as you shouldn't have near as many problems with your feet.

Is the lower foot rail "on"? Feels pretty steep for V6 if the rail is off but maybe a little soft if it is on? May 23, 2011
