DescriptionI didn't see this listed, so I thought I'd add this route that I worked on the other day (next time I go back, I plan on cleaning it up!). I'll also take some better pics next time I'm out there.
On the north side of the boulder, starting about 5 feet or so to the left of the mini-cave, sit-start with your hands on a long sloping ledge, then heel hook the ledge as you move hands up and match on the next big sloper (that's right before the left end of the mini-cave). Move your heel hook up, then flag your right leg out to an obviously good foot placement on the right side of the cave as you reach up for an obvious jug just above the mini-cave (slightly to the left-center above the cave). Then top out by following a small ridge line of slopers, pinches, and jug up and slightly to the left).
It's a really fun problem, and one of the few that I've seen so far on the boulder where you really rely on a couple of strong heel hooks. I was the only one to do it when I was out there, so the rating may not be right.
