Description

bring a couple pads to protect from a bad landing on large boulder. This climb is a couple fun moves up a polished granite boulder, it seems like there are no holds but look closely it's all there, no broken holds. climb up the east face and down climb the west face using a low ledge for your feet.

Location

located on far east side of the first bouldering hill. when the trail makes a right turn to go toward the aid hill look for it on the left side.

Protection

crash pads

Until proven otherwise I believe this is my FA, or FKA. I climbed this in 2011 and remember cleaning the first high hold on the left. A true slab climb, short and sweet Nov 2, 2013

No holds broke but you're probably right about it being v3. Right next to the shocker feature there is a key hand that is also used for the foot. Look for the notch on top in the dead center to mantle up smearing feet. Nov 11, 2012

I think a hold might have broke off because this climb seemed very bare. I think its more like a v3 or 4 at least Oct 23, 2012
