Description

This route the easy forward sloping face off of the left side of the boulder, very close to the tree. Three to four moves focusing on good micro ledge feet placement. Staring on the underside of this route from a sitting position would increase rating alot.

Location

On the EB Boulder there are actually three very seperate ways up. It ranges in difficulty from left to right starting at 5.6 on the far left slope and going out to 5.10 micro ledges on the far right.

Protection

Dirt below with some rocks, pad always recomended but a good spotter could work.

Photos

There are at least two sit-start variations of the left face of the EB Boulder. They start matched on the low part of the big rail. The easier one (5.10- / V0) moves right up the rail, then out right to a good incut crimp before surmounting the bulge and topping out. The harder version (5.11 / V2) makes a powerful move up and left from the rail to a left hand crimp, then heel hook and crank up and right to stand on the ledge. Maybe these should be posted as separate problems? Jun 10, 2011
