The tallest boulder in the meadow. This line follows the 45-degree over hanging arete. Start on low pinch on arete and right on the long crimp rail with left heel in the half moon.


Follow faint climber trail up the hill and into a grassy meadow. turn left and walk over the ridge.

One of the best on all the mountain! Still no send for me yet, but I'm working it, getting close... Rad compression moves lead to an awesome giant crux move with a victory slab as the cherry on top.

Nice work putting this up. A neo-Pine Mountain test piece for sure! Dec 2, 2012
I have been looking for this problem for a little while with no luck... any chance someone could give me a little more detailed information on how to find it please? It'd be much appreciated! Sep 2, 2013

From the last campsite go north to the ridgeline then follow the ridge to the east about 5 minutes. The stone will be on the left at the edge of a clearing Sep 3, 2013
Thanks! I'll be up there in next few weeks, stoked to find and try it! Sep 7, 2013

So. Just pulled off the post breakage send. The new sequence is really cool, goes straight up the prow. Pure compression. Same grade for sure. Oct 21, 2013

Currently, 5 routes have been established on this boulder and 4 projects remain.
I'll make a more updaded section once I get all the pictures sorted out.
But just for fun, here's an early entry. Body Movement v9/10

P.S. everyone. I saw Sean straight up knock a bear out last week when it got too close. While it was unconscious Sean shaved his name into it's fur. So if you see a bear with Sean Crozier written on the back of it's head while you're up at Pine this weekend, that's why. Oct 30, 2013

This boulder is not really on Enlightenment Ridge, maybe that is why people have a hard time finding it.
I think that the boulder is quality, and so is the work you guys have put in to it.
Perhaps it is deserving its own area on the MP Pine Mountain page. Other boulders on the north slope could also be included.

jus a thought. May 20, 2014
I made my once every few years trip to Pine Mountain this last weekend and managed to get a tour of some of the north-side bouldering from "Trad-Bob".

I have to say that this is a STELLAR, STELLAR boulder problem. This is so good it makes me want to get fit again. Well done. Would be interested to know about the line to the right as well...looks like it has a scary big dyno finish? Super rad line as well. Great find Sean et. al.! Jun 15, 2014

Bob: Do it. Maybe the best line on the mountain.
