Description [Suggest Change]

A great boulder problem just right of Blue Lambo. Start standing with left hand on the arete and right hand on a small crimp. Slap up to the sloper and continue up and slightly left with big moves between good holds to a sloping topout.

The landing is pretty bad as of this writing, so a good spotter is key. If you fall from midway up or higher you could miss the first tier of the landing zone and fall down further into some talus taking your spotter with you. But dont let that scare you off of this super fun boulder problem. Just put your spotter in the right place.

Just right of Blue Lambo on the pretty face.

I have talked to several people who have done a sit start to this boulder problem and claim it is slightly harder. Around v10. Mar 26, 2014

The spotter should make sure to have a very secure stance (build up the landing if necessary). On one attempt, I came off at mid height, hit the the edge of the landing, pitched over backwards into the talus below, taking out my spotter with me. Mar 28, 2014
