Description

Sit start on the west corner of the boulder. Work up and to about the 2nd crack in the seam from here slap the top for non existent holds if you can stretch far enough you'll hit a nice knob to grab. Fun moderate problem hardest part is trying to pull up on nothing since you can't see the knob. Short fun and bouldery movement make this a great problem.

Location

Metamorphic rock

Protection

crash pads Great landing below, its really cleared out and just dirt and leaves below.

Fun problem. Made easier by using the large incut holds which are obvious until you are right below them. Escaping left is also fun and is a bit easier (v0). Feb 15, 2012

If you are looking to get sideways bouldering at Blue Mounds I recommend: W at Craig's Cave, Lip Sync on East Quarry Boulder, Pieta on the Quarry Boulder, the boulder crux on No Go Crack, and Sam's Opus on The Cube.

Edit to include Three Across (so good) and Daddy Long-legs Express (probably Blue Mounds' best traverse problem.) Mar 9, 2012
