This excellent problems climbs the left hand side of the face (just right of a tree), starting on a good, hollow flake at 5 to 6 feet. Make a big move to the juggy rail above. Then traverse right along that rail for a few moves and top out left of the crack.

One of the best problems at Ridgeline. Worth doing on the way to the Den.

Note: The starting hold has broken a bit, making it a little harder than it originally was.


Located 15 feet off of the white blazed trail that runs from Boulder Natural to Devil's Den. This is the first (and most obvious) problem at Ridgeline. The boulder is identified by a tall, clean face and a crack that runs diagonally leftward up the right side of that face.

There is that stump to watch out for when you get to the end of the traverse. Just be careful and have someone spot you if this is your limit. Aug 15, 2014

I'm convinced the start hold broke on this, couldn't do the first move two weeks ago, and I remember falling off the topout four years or so ago when I was a v2ish climber. Still goes, but harder than v2 unless I was missing something. Sep 11, 2015

I don't know. I'll be back in a few weeks. I'll take a look sometime when I'm in the area. It wouldn't surprise me. A lot of the rock in the Ridgeline area is a little flaky. Sep 11, 2015

Seems like the center of the big flake popped out leaving smaller more awkward holds, hopefully I'll hop on it tomorrow. Sep 11, 2015

I've always wondered if the start hold broke on this. Oct 23, 2015

Finally got around to checking this out the other day. The starting hold may have broken a little, but I can't imagine that it's too much harder as what's left is still pretty good. I switched it v2/3. If I get around to climbing it again, I'll contribute my thoughts. But it isn't high on the list of things to do. :) Oct 27, 2015

I could not even figure out how to get past pulling off the ground, looks cool and I want to climb it but I have no idea what to do as far as beta goes haha. Also the stump needs to be removed, I tried the crack climb to the right and it was dirty and the crux is above the stump... Dec 26, 2015

Jake, the start feet as i remember are a right foot (small nub/smear) and left out in a spot that makes your balance off center when you first pull onto the wall. decent hands and a big move (somewhat height dependent) up and slightly left to the bomber rail. I thought it felt like v3+ but maybe the broken hold has contributed to difficulty. Apr 2, 2016
Wow I have walked past this boulder forever thinking that hee was nothing on it... it looks cool so I'll get on it soon! Oct 17, 2016
