Start on a good left hand edge under the prow with a right hand on a sloper and a high right foot. Work up the arete and top out.


This is the first problem you will see when coming up from the valley towards The Alcove boulders.


A pad or two, good landing.


Derek- I had done a low start on this boulder (left side sit) about 2000-2001, called it "Whacky", and thought it was about V7 or so. I don't believe there were any other ascents prior seeing the amount of cleaning I had done on this as well as other boulders in the area. I do know there were some folks climbing there a little after I had been(Rob and Andy?) as well as some others that were climbing there in the '80s, but as near as I could tell a lot of the stuff there that I did were 1st ascents due to the amount of cleaning.

Would love to know what boulders people are climbing there, and I may have some more pics, video, or info, if interested. I loved this area, because I was always there alone, it's very secluded, and it's just great bouldering!

(edit) I did think it was quite a bit harder than V4, but I do think I started a little different, feet under the roof to the left(?) does that sound right? I put down V6+ for the grade, but I remember thinking it was harder than that at the time. Oct 24, 2010

I thought V7 from the lower sit/crouch start. Mar 17, 2011

I did this with a left side-pull and right hand on a sloper. Heel hook with the right foot on almost nothing, and this definitely was all footwork...but am I missing something? I'm totally not a V6 climber.

edit:Met a guy tom nonis, who mention a sit has been done from the right side, off the flake. Started it, and felt the flake move...its definitely ready to pop off. Apr 16, 2013

Felt like V4 from the stand. Sit seems a lot harder. Jan 27, 2018
