TO me this is the Gem of Palisades Bouldering. Start on a nice curved crimp hold and smear your feet on tiny pebbles. Your left hand goes to obvious pointing rock to your left. Pull up using pure friction moves stick the decent side crimp this is probably the crux as it is almost a deadpoint for some. Once you get the side crimp KNOW that the horizontal crack above is good and although you can't see it just stick it when you go for it. Pull up on the horn and your done. Sit start direct has been done as well much harder. 1 of 3.


Route below Balancing Rock. Follow down stairs hang a right when at bottom make sure the ice is thick go round the corner and there she be.
