Description

Start low sitting on a boulder in a group of three trees, and climb out the slightly overhanging face using crimps and then slopers; being sure to take care to not dive down the embankment should you fall off this problem. When you hit the jugs, mantle onto the ledge to your right and claw your way up the low angle slab.
When you top out, howl at the moon. You're a nature boy now.

Location

This problem is on the upper ancient boulder, on the face you can see directly when you approach it.

Protection

Pad and a good spotter.

Finally got around to climbing this today. Although the holds are still a bit sharp in places the route climbs fairly well. It starts with fun tension-y movement on good holds to a large move to a jug. It would get another star if a tumble down the hill wasn't always in the back of your mind. Jun 30, 2015

I went up there and trundled the rock out from underneath it today. It makes for a much better climb with the spiky pain rock gone. Apr 29, 2015

Walked up and took a look at this today. It looks pretty cool, I didn't give it any tries. If the sharp rock gets pulled out of the ground it would make the start a lot less awkward. Looking forward to climbing this rig. Mar 20, 2015
