Description

Stand start on in the middle of the slippery slab. Climb up and left, following the line of better holds. The crux is at the bottom, and it eases up quite a bit at the top, but it is pretty high.

Location

Past the parking lot, just past the narrowest part of the notch on your way to stow. There is a place to park right next to this boulder, but if you are going to work on problems there, you might not want to park your car there.

Protection

A few pads and an attentive spotter, you do not want to fall from the top

This was reputed to be the first ever boulder problem in the notch - first done by Fritz Weissner. Anyone who sends this and calls it easy should think of Fritz sending it in rope soled slippers. Then get to suicide or taquitz and try some of his slippery 5.9 test pieces and you'll start to get the picture. Aug 13, 2012
