The face just left of the shot hole #1 arête (V2)

Unnamed problem that uses the arête with you right hand and the four shot holes up the face with your left. Stand start and throw left to the first shot hole. Slap the arête with your right and then throw to the next shot hole. First half is pretty easy. Use the undercling with your left, slap the arête with your right, get a high left foot and throw for the third shothole. From here on up felt like the crux. Smear as high as you can and either hit the fourth shot hole or the undercling/side pull. Good topout (there's a bolt on top if ya need to toprope it).

The only downside is that the face is pretty dirty. Will hopefully clean up with more traffic. With the arête off, I'm sure it would be a lot harder!

Our associate bheller was nice enough to remedy the situation. He must have done a great job pulling and patching as it was still bolted a few weeks ago. It had been very recently bolted as a two bolt sport line. Mar 26, 2015

Yeah, it probably is called Parking Lot Boulder. I didn't see any bolts on it but it looks like people have tried bolting it in the past? Only bolt hanger I've seen is on the top and around the right side on the crack problem (looks pretty old). Mar 25, 2015

Awesome!!!! Gracias

I still believe that this is called the Parking Lot Boulder not the Road Side Boulder. Mar 22, 2015

No recent, poorly planned, overly shiny, low-quality material, un-necessarily placed bolts exist on this long time bolder problem;) Mar 22, 2015
