DescriptionThis lone, tall boulder seemed to be unclimbable because of the lack of holds on it, but after managing to get stood up on the NW slab, I knew it had to go. I took my friend Ren there and we pushed it to the top with a big stack of pads and a bunch of spotters. It's tall and lichenous and the only way down is to slide off the NE side and take a 10 foot jump to the pads. I'm not aware of a previous history of this climb.
LocationFrom the High Island area, it's across the dirt road that goes to Camp Wamatachick. It's the only tall, dirty, egg-like boulder sitting there with no apparent line to the top. Climb the NW slab. The start involves high stepping onto a faint arete. Jump off the NE side.
