Description

Cloud to Ground is a complete problem that climbs a good assortment of holds on roughly textured rock.

Sit start at the base of the overhanging arete with hands on opposing sidepulls. Move up using the large sidepull and two-finger pocket to gain the sloper. From there, move out left to a sidepull crimp and pull hard to another two-finger pocket and subsequent lip. At this point, move right to a large gaston/sidepull, and top it out using the sole crimp atop the boulder.

Down-climb the northeast arete. Additionally, be cognizant of the topout shelf feature, as its quality is a bit dubious.

Location

This is on the North face of the Wild Horse Boulder.

Protection

A few pads and a spotter, the landing is great though.
