Description



This, the premier boulder problem of the area, was for many years a much sought-after prize with it's tricky sequence of holds, purity of line, and of course, it's highball nature. Today's boulderer may not find the moves that difficult and with a stack of pads find the height rather tame but try it on-sight and padless for a retro feel of South Ridge's finest.

Although looked at and attempted by locals it was a visiting Colorado climber, Skip Guerin, who first claimed the prized ascent.

Protection

Several pads and spotter are nice.
