Description

This grimacing problem goes up the Western side of this large boulder. (Stand start) Find your right foot then initiate the climb and bump your way to a thumb hole and index/middle finger pinch, or however you want to hang on it. Find your feet and figure out your next move, may seem daunting at first but goes fairly easy. Get up to the angled seam and prepare to do your last few moves to top out this highball with a sketchy landing.


(currently a project of mine, more to come)

Location

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. Boulder faces down hill away from the crag, problem is on the left (Western) narrower side of the boulder.

Protection

Crash pad, 2 would be nice and a spotter. Large rock in the landing zone and a sketchy top out.

Definitely a sketchy landing with the large boulder behind you. Rated soft as to being a taller climber. Apr 19, 2015
