Description

Start in the middle of the boulder and ascend face holds for a few moves. Then bust out right to a nice hueco. Ascend the line of huecos to reach a blank section. Traverse left to a nice crimp to gain higher feet. Move back right to another crimp, match hands then go up with the right for the topout. Amazing moderate climb!

Location

Start just left of the obvious crack. Descend via the back of the boulder.

Protection

Pads and spotters.

Yes, time is running out, but email them to me anyway. Make sure to add the climber and the photographer's name. They have to be 10MP or higher. email@vcrux.com I'll keep you posted. Thanks Nov 1, 2010

In the guide currently being published this boulder is known as Aurora Boulder. The boulder problem is not listed in the guide. So FRA works. I'd be happy to add this to the guide. Oct 9, 2010

In situations like this I like to use "FRA" for First Recorded Ascent. Then someone can correct it later if they are certain of a true FA. May 7, 2010
Hard to say, many climbers have passed through there over the years and Bob Murray has spent more than a few weekends down there. May 6, 2010

If someone knows of a prior first ascent I will be happy to adjust the route. Just let me know. May 5, 2010
