I think I know the exact boulder you're talking about, but I don't know the problem… If I'm thinking of the right one, it didn't look like "warm up" material :) I remember looking at it several times, but could never see any holds above the cavity. Does it kind of have a weird landing? My memory is a bit foggy on this one... Oct 18, 2015

Hey Greg not to go off topic here. There is a boulder that sits almost parallel with the cheat and north nostril cave. If your facing the cheat this block sits alone up by a slab wall to your right. Almost across the "valley" from
Hidden agenda. It sits right on the cliff. One? Really good scrubbed problem that is a fun warm up! Same with the slab wall to its right when facing this unknown block. Has kind of a huge cavity / hue I feature at its base. You throw up to a small crimp feature with your right I believe and then transition to a hold on the arĂȘte above the cavity/hueco. Fun gym climb. Any idea?? Oct 17, 2015

Figured you would comment Greg! I know the actual line goes over more. I think he tried bailing a little earlier which didn't make it any easier. Oct 14, 2015

For the FA, I continued traversing the lip all the way over to the horizontal slot (seen in the far left side of the photos) before mantling up and over. Oct 14, 2015
