Description

On the Brewski boulder. This climb starts on the left side of the slab, just to the left of the bulge. Find 2 micro-crimps/edges and pick feet to pull off them and get up into some edges. Use the edges on the left side by the arete, but the arete is off.

Location

This boulder is located between the Top of the Notch area and the Parking Lot area. When walking on the path that goes past the info hut by the parking lot you should see this boulder. If you're walking from the Top of the Notch its right before the Cave area.

such a bummer that this doesn't get done more often. You start right of the left hand arete with your right foot cammed behind the obvious block just under the main boulder. Left foot on next to nothing and both hands up high.

The first move is the undo the right foot and press it onto an edge.

From there the next move is a toss up and left for the left hand - then a hard move to get your feet up and under you in order to move your right hand up high to the 'sliver' hold - small high crimp. Then get your feet under you and toss up left hand high to a solid incut edge (this hold broke on my fa attempt). After gaining that hold - stand up and avoiding the left hand arete make your way up the face to the top (scary but maybe v3).

This was for its time one of the harder lines to go in the notch. Oct 7, 2015

A picture of the starting holds would be super helpful for this problem, given that they aren't very obvious starting holds. Or at least that's what I thought when I tried it. Just a suggestion. Jul 8, 2014
