Start on the obvious rats nest jug, and move right following a series of great overhanging jugs. Pull into the scoop prow on the right, and either top out back left through the sloping channel (recommended) or go straight over the bulge (awkward, slightly harder to protect).

Either way it's good fun, and one of the best moderate overhanging routes around. Great for laps.

Description in O11 is kind of vague (I don't get it?) so if this is wrong let me know.


On the Rat boulder.




Was there last Sunday (April 30th) and noticed the holds after the start holds have an X on them. I did not climb the problem but felt the holds and they are loose for sure. May 4, 2017
Several large cracks on the far right of the boulder (as you begin to climb out of the overhang and onto the face) have deepened significantly after the storms of winter '16-'17. I would be very careful yarding underneath this part of the boulder, because that massive hunk looks like it may want to come down one of these days. Mar 11, 2017
