[Hide Comment] While people obviously do it all the time without assistance, I would personally recommend having a rope and harness nearby for the descent (there is a bolt with a quick link on top of the boulder). The down climb itself is probably only 5.2 - but a fall could easily kill you. Regardless of how you get down, going up is fantastic. Nov 12, 2018
