Description

Boulderers Rejoice! There is now a difficult route on the breath taking Yellowjacket Boulder that doesn't require the mental fortitude of John Bachar.

Start with your hands crossed in two unique looking geode pockets and get right down to business from the moment you pull on. Make a long move out right to a side pull jug and then readjust your feet to set up for the crux. Using speed and accuracy, move your left hand up into a side pull pocket that doesn't feel as good as it looks. Once you have the left side pull, tap dance you feet up and prepare for the final hard move. Launch right to the long awaited jug at the lip and then roll over on the slab. Walk up the slab to the top of the boulder and down climb on the opposite side.

At the top of the boulder resist the urge to look over the lip of The Big Short. This decision would make it more difficult to eventually muster the courage to attempt the true 5 star line on the boulder.
