Good Boulder with 4 hard problems, and a long overhanging traverse.

River Traverse: 5.11/V4, V6 indirect finish. left to right overhanging traverse. Start at river and climb right. Start on mini-Sloth simulator then big grips, look for micro-crimp dyno on clean sheet (shist) for V6, with tree behind.

TB: 5.11, V4, fading initials chipped into start, central crack, with big foothold but hard finish to cool ledge/jug.

Left Knob: 5.12, V7, 1970's-80's test piece, difficult rock over with small grips. Highball.

Orangutang Overhang: V3; A natural campus board with decades of history.


75 m SW of Jan's Face, upstream. SW. Just right of "Jack Knife".
River Traverse is left of "Matt Splat"


Pads, now, guts and finger strength then.
