Description [Edit]

Fairly high boulder problem directly on the main trail just down the hill from the main crag. Problem goes up the center of the high nearly vertical rock on lipped flake like holds. Be cautious of thin flakes and don't pull out as much on the holds as you pull down, they can be brittle. Lots of options for holds, do what works for you, keep your feet in comfortable positions on some of the narrower sharper holds to prevent discomfort work up the rock to the lip on the right for quick rest before pushing out the last few feet towards the left. Top out and straddle the top of the rock and throw your hands up in the joy of success then scamper your way down the slopey other side.

20 feet high measured

Location [Edit]

Heading down the main path below the Western side of the crag. (when approaching the crag from the parking on the hiking trail you would turn right once you reached the top of the crag and head West until you could get around that side of the crag. Follow that trail down around and continue for 50 yrds and the rock is sticking straight out of the main path as the path starts to turn Eastward. Problem faces down hill away from the crag

Protection [Edit]

Crash pad, or 2, spotter. Problem is mostly straight up so little ground to cover but problem is fairly high and no joke, Rated V1, IDK? Could go V1- holds and moves are pretty straight forward, new climbers should be cautious as it would be easy to get high on the rock before fatigue and fear of falling set in, this or one break or slip from up high could easily result in sever injury. Be safe out there
