DescriptionYet another manufactured gem in the foothills. You can actually spot the sika from 200 feet away, but yet this boulder problem climbs surprisingly well. Steep, powerful, climbing on holds created for your enjoyment.
Start low in the cave on a left-handed flake and right-handed undercling and make the big moves on positive holds to a big move to gain good edges leading to the top-out. The slab above is quite technical and not a total gimme. 10-12 moves will get you to the slab.
Another variation veers left from a good crimp and continues around the blunt bulge to the face above. Follow the obvious trail...Most likely in the V9-10 range.
