The Pillar

Colorado > Boulder > Flagstaff > Dark Side > Jim Hall Boulder

Description

This is the route on the cool looking pillar sticking out of the ground. Start low hanging on to both sides of the two foot wide boulder. Use the top of the boulder and a few holds on the face to get to the point and then top out. This is a fun problem with an awkward topout but worth doing.

Location

This boulder is just above the Jim Hall Boulder and downhill from the Slot Overhang. It is right on a little trail that goes between the Cloud Shadow and Nook's Rock.

A pad.
