Such a fun climb. Highly recommended if you are confident at the grade. Pads and spotters will put you at ease as well.
Start at the left side of the Napalm Boulder,
down in the crevasse between the main boulder and the lower block.
Match on the left side long, smoothcut ledge block. toss up under the huge, tremendous flake where deep juggy right trending cracks make the path. follow to the right side of the massive flake and link into the left trending jug line. follow left to hit a smaller, thinner edge rail trending right again... into a jug, and then a small positive edge. the thank you god, gym style jug horns make the trip worth its weight in gold. top out with extreme confidence.
LocationFrom 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.
