Starting low in the crack of the balancing boulder make the long moves out the steep prow/arete on sharp crimps to the lip where the challenging mantle awaits. Stand start is V6.


Located on the East side of the balancing boulder.

I have been doing a lot of hard stuff in Boulder Canyon and I drove back to NM the other day and did this boulder prob. The key crimp was broke off and way small now. I would call this a soft V8 but still an eight and a must do if you like to rock climb! Dec 7, 2011

I seem to recall being told it was something like V6? and maybe V5 from the stand but I've never really tried it so I don't know. Feb 4, 2011
Oh no, this was around long before John came along.
I recall Gary showing it to me around '77.
V8 ? No way... Feb 4, 2011
