Description

This was a really cool problem that climbs a face right next to a sharp, crumbly crack starting with a double undercling in a alcove before tackling the face. It is quite rough on the hands though.

Start down in the alcove with a double undercling, a good pocket for the left, a blunt edge for the right, and feet on the kickboard. Decide how you'll take on the face with extremely limited foot options. Make it to the nice sharp jug, and then pull on top.

The sketchy downclimb is to the left of the problem, but it may be easier to jump onto your crashpad.

If you know the history, feel free to chime in and I can update.

Location

The route as well as others are located southeast of the main red rock fins. If coming from the Settlers Park TH, walk up the normal path towards the main outcropping where there is a bench that overlooks Boulder. About 100 yards before the bench, there is a small drainage trail on your right (southeast) that heads to a short visible wall.

This problem is about halfway down the wall.

Protection

A crashpad. It has a great, flat landing.
