Description

MOW Boulder:

What a line! (be ready for some sharps)

Walk down the L.R.T to the Mouth Of Wilson boulder formation, which can be found by walking from the parking lot past the top lookout and continuing down the Listening Rock Trail past a deep cavelike formation to your right which is called "the room", then past another large boulder to your left called "The Hive Boulder". continue past a tiny but fun warm up v0 blade called the "Foggy Mountain Fin" and then you will approach a sharp double back in the trail. once you pass the double back, you will shortly come upon a striking formation that looks similar to "pacman" or a large mouth, lending to its namesake which is the Mouth Of Wilson. the problem starts ontop of the patio deck, and stand starts on the bottom left edge of the overhung arete, topping out over the left tip of the upper boulder.
Stand start on the leftside arete, on a low corner jug. gain a heel hook, and crimp up the arete to gain another jug with your left hand. move to the right through crimps to gain a slot via hard moves. hit the distant jug rails with pumpy moves to reach the solid top out.
