Description

Easy to find and a classic for the area.

Walk to the Rock House Boulder and start around the left side (as if you are going to hike along the trail past the boulder itself). Find the bright blue blaze that is the trail marker for the Rock House Ridge hiking trail.
Once you find that blaze, you have found the problem.

The starting hand hold is down and to the right from the blaze, and is a big side-pull with a good edge on top. under the start hand is a large edge that you will heel hook for the start.

Start low with a left hand side-pull, or sit start lower to add a move (but not a grade). From the side-pull, bump out to the left to a good crimp edge.
make a bump up to a good side-pull and work up and along the long, vertical feature until you can access the horizontal crimp rail (running about 9 or 10 feet off of the ground). Gain the long rail and move to the top sloper (find the nice edge in the sloper) that is just before the nice top out jug.
The topout is more or less above the starting holds.

start low, but not with a sit start, with a left hand sidepull, right hand on upper edge, and a heel hook below on the left facing edge.

Powerful start with really good holds. Interesting moves in the middle climbing up the rail. Oct 9, 2017
