Description [Suggest Change]

Very cool looking holds that you just want to grab, especially that huge cobble at the top.

Start out on any of the knobs that you can reach, probably a shoulder height right hand on a small 1-2 finger and a high left foot. Climb up the knobs that all face left to the huge broken off black cobble at the top. You will encounter a bit of technical cranking and some thin feet.

Worth doing for sure but the right starting hold can open you up.

Location [Suggest Change]

This problem climbs the knobby face 5 feet left of the down-climb off of the Glass House Boulder.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Pad and spotter to keep you off the rock about 4 feet behind the problem.

I saw the little divot, right where you would want your right foot to start.

Sharp is the truth, Dave opened his right thumb on the start hold after a handful of tries. Apr 5, 2010
Jeremy,
I think you should tell us how you really feel about the tree.

Yeah, and opened my left knee from popping off the big slopey foothold. Worst thing about it is I'll be back for more... Apr 14, 2010
