Description

This problem is just a traverse that goes underneath the roof from left to right. The hardest part is the big move to the pull the ending mantel. I had to stick my right foot way up between the two rocks to make this move and, had I fallen, could have totally broken my ankle. Be careful!

Location

The problem on the west side of the boulder. Its really the only thing on the boulder.

Thanks for cleaning this up!

I'm pretty sure it was some H.S. kids trying to find a place to drink where the cops wouldn't find them. There is also an old fire pit just uphill and across the trail where they sometimes congregate. At least they didn't spray paint everywhere... Sep 21, 2017

Next time you and your homies slam 7 Bud Lights while climbing, maybe pack the cans out instead of leaving them scattered in the landing and stuffed between the 2 boulders. Though that 30 second hike back to your car sure would suck with 7 empties' work of weight.

If you left your Apple headphones here, they're in a pocket under the base boulder for this problem.

Really fun problem! There is a way to do it without sticking your foot in the crack, so don't be afraid to check it out. Sep 20, 2017
