Description

Napalm Boulder:

Would be worth more stars if the bottom difficulty continued to the top, but its still a cool line.

Start Low and to the far right side of the boulder, to the right of the big detached front block. There will be low, jagged flakes producing slot edges to pull off the start on.

Sit start at slot edges, toss up to the right edge of the overhang to finger jug. trend left to work across overhung face through monstrous jug ledges to top out through the huge notch at top.

Location

From the "Shang-High" Boulder, continue down the trail to the second lookout (and walking up the stairs to enjoy the view of course) and continue past it. this part of the trail seem boulder-less.. Continue past the lookout for 5 minutes and you will find the seemingly short, elongated "Autumn Boulder".
Walk around the short overhanging Autumn Boulder, and behind it will be the tall, inclined, Napalm Boulder.

I may have done this line thinking that the "big jug" for 50 Shades of Gray was the flake slot. There's not much room for other starts on this boulder...so what differentiates the two starts? Aug 30, 2015
