V6, Boulder, 15 ft,  Avg: 2.9 from 9 votes
FA: unknown
Utah > Joe's Valley > Right Fork > Lower Hillside

Description

Start with your feet on the huge shelf under the roof and your hands on the crimp rail and/or pocket. Move through a sharp, bunchy, and dynamic crux to jugs for the topout. Be super careful of the last jug on the top of the boulder, it's very fragile. I recommend a beached whale or maybe a left exit. You must avoid pulling much at all on this hold.

Location

The first boulder uphill and to the right of Team Effort. Very striking boulder.

Protection

Pads, fragile rock skills.
