Description

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.

Location

That big ass boulder with the Y shaped crack in it as you're making your way up the hill. Yeah, traverse that thing.

Protection

High socks for the Thistle

You really should do something with your VV info. At very least pick the best obvious problems from each boulder and add them to this database. I'm starting to try, but I'm not 100% on exactly whats what everywhere. I'm trying to add a photo with the route so that it's easier to tell exactly where the route is. Trying to describe pinches, edges and starts on that stone is as you know, nearly impossible. Let me know if I get something wrong.

Either that or as is frequently the case out at VV boulders, watch as your routes are forgotten, renamed and washed over by time. Jan 28, 2013

Split: They are in the guide, it just depends on what version you have ;) At some point, I probably should to do something with the info. Jan 28, 2013

If you start in the off width and go left, we called it Fun in the Sun at V2'ish. Jan 28, 2013
