Access Issue: Trail Entrance is on Private Property, but altercations are rare. Details


This problem goes straight up the middle of a large triangular boulder that stands alone on the trail. The holds are crimps and slopers with terrible feet.


About 100 yards before the first big rock formation.

Nice! And you think V8 is the grade? Do you have more specific beta for me to add to the description? Start holds, etc? Also, what name do you have in mind? May 1, 2017

Lets call it "Chisel". And yes i think it may be a v8. Could possibly be a v7 but Ill try to get some others out to try it and get a concencus... I did a sit start with the jug rail at the center of the boulder, then moved straight up through the sloper rails and crimps to top out at the point. Figuring out the beta is half the fun so i wont post the video on here but if you want to see it send me a private message with your number or email and ill send it to you. May 1, 2017

This is actually called Spotlight (aka Midway)

It was done a long time ago by Wes Powell/Senya Iaryguine

Original Line starts low mid face, left side rock off, and can either top out left or right at the prow.

v9 was the grade given May 12, 2017
