Tom's White Fence

Colorado > Grand Junction… > Unaweep Canyon > Nine Mile Hill > Nine Mile Bould… > Dave Loves Donn… > Crazy Diamond Boulder

Description

This is a solid, overhanging boulder with potential for lots of problems, if it hasn't been established already. Start on two good crimps, figure out your feet placement and throw to a good pocket about 4 feet away. Your feet will cut so be ready. After that, grab some slopers (or there's a crimp and a sloper option) and top out. The huecos are huge, but it's really about where you're getting your feet when you top out. After that, it's cake.

Location

The problem is just about in the middle of the boulder's overhanging face. Right now, it's got lots of chalk on it, so it's easy to find. Downclimb on the northwest side with some big pockets.

Protection

A pad (or more) and spotter is good.

Sticking the first move of Tom's White Fence. Perhaps my favorite move in Unaweep!
