Slighly overhanging, thin hands, leads to nice hands, fists and into an off-width, then an off-width slab. Placed a couple butterflies on this one.


Crack on the Western face of the Hamburger Boulder.


Medium to Large Protection (#1-#6). Bolts on top. Rap-off.

Aptly named, be prepared to do some serious tape-up for this route. I found myself doing hand stacks, ring jams, and fist jams on this bad boy. Burly! Jan 31, 2012

Did this with #2-#4, definitely wish I would have seen the advice about bringing a #6. Not too bad with the #4 though, as you can protect just below the slab, and run it out till the bolts. Feb 11, 2014

Be prepared for thin hands on slightly overhung to off width slab. very burly climb for the first 10 feet! cams from BD C4 #2-#5. Dec 22, 2014

Load up on the #3s to #5s for the top section. Really great climb with all kinds of crack techniques Feb 9, 2016
Don't miss out if you only have cams to BD #3, its a bit run out at the top but its easier slab with plenty of friction options. Great climb. Rap anchors at the top. Jul 4, 2016

This is solid 5.9 OW, so if you're not a > fist crack ninja, bring a #5 and #6 camelot for your sanity. Yes, the slab mellows it up a bit, but you've got chicken wings when you try to step out onto it. Don't let the first few solid hand jams fool you. Burly, but great! Sep 25, 2016

I'll pipe in and say the off width section wasn't too bad--although I brought a number 5, and was happy to have it. However, you can protect it perfectly with a number 4; the 5 inch section is a slab, and there are only two to three moves of mandatory offwidth preceding the slab. The crack has a good edge too--my follower had near zero crack technique, but was able to double gaston his way through the number 4 section. Excellent climb for the budding crack climber--if you can do the first two moves, you can make it to the top. Get on it! Aug 6, 2018
