Description

Shogun is easily the best problem at the Bar, but be prepared for 22 feet of increasing difficulty ie: v2/3 to v3/4 to a v5/6 topout, high of the deck.

Location

Left side of Shogun Boulder.

Protection

One spotter and two or three pads can adequately cover the landing since it was built up.

constant sun exposure in the summer makes this a classic morning boulder. V6 is a little liberal, I'd say it's more mentally taxing than physically because of the commitment move at the top. Probably closer to v4+ or V5- Jan 26, 2014

Hey guys!
The "Bar" is in Chris Mac's Norhern California Bouldering guidebook. It has more cimbs than are listed on MP but does not contain the Shogun boulder as it was out up after the book came out. Its easily the best problem there, but be prepared for 22 feet of increasing difficulty ie: v2/3 to v3/4 to a v5/6 topout, high of the deck. one spotter and two or three pads can adequately cover the landing since it was built up. I have the FA on it and always like to show the area to some new and motivated. potential for other first ascents for sure. PM me if you wanna setup a time to go boulder at the Bar!
