Description

Alcatraz Boulder:

this line is so good!!!
Walk down the LRT past the top look out, passing the room and then following the trail past a sharp turn in the trail. Look for the massive "Mouth-of-Wilson" boulder which is large platform boulder with another, severely overhanging boulder on-top of it forming an abstract Pacman type mouth that is called the "Mouth-of-Wilson" from the name of a local community... walk just past this and walk off the trail to the back of the Mouth-of-Wilson formation where there is another heavy inclined boulder surface and a tunnel/cave looking opening formed by the leaning boulders.

this problem Starts matched in the jug holds formed in the horizontal crack line low on the boulder.
Launch into an impressive dyno out to a good but hard to latch, flat slot. gain slot and commence a left traverse through crimps that lead into the dark tunnel/cave. work around a slight corner on the boulder to gain the large, positive glory jugs.
once on the jugs climb straight up through the high opening/hole useing the back 'mini boulder' to help in the "escape"....

the slab boulder behind you is obviously off, but the back, small, 'mini boulder' i referred to is on and used in the last moves in the route once you gain the glory jugs at the end of the route...
