A complete clockwise traverse of the Y boulder(aka. saddle boulder). Start on the vertical easy face and pull around the corner. Pull some difficult moves, get a good rest in the offwidth, then pull around the corner and utilize those heel hooks as you try and keep your feet off the ground for the rest of the traverse. Kinda lame but pumpy, rarely done and very long. Will test your endurance for sure.
That big ass boulder with the Y shaped crack in it as you're making your way up the hill. Yeah, traverse that thing.
