Description

Bouldery crux start with a throw to a shallow dish. Slap the arete then follow the pocketed prow to a second crux above the 4th bolt, pulling past a razor crimp. Gets ocean spray at high tides, especially in the winter.

Location

On the ocean-facing portion of the Puff Boulder. Head past the Main Wall, drop over the little saddle, and scramble left along the base of the wall. Starts off a large boulder.

Protection

5 bolts, anchors.

Someone left an old bail biner on the crux bolt that is completely rusted shut. I wasn't able to pry it open, perhaps massive plyers or just a hacksaw will be needed. Please, DON'T Leave bail biners right over the ocean! You can easily rap off the slack-line bolts on the top of the boulder to retrieve gear on any of the Puff Boulder routes. If you must leave something, please leave a wiregate, as there's less concern of that rusting over before someone can remove it. Apr 29, 2016
