Description [Suggest Change]

Some thoughtful + fun moves. Too bad it's not longer.

Straight up to the "peak" (without using the big vertical dagger rock in the gully). Finish up left side of peak.

warning: as of 2016 there is still some big possibly loose rocks in the gully which have not been fully cleaned out. Belayer and other members of party should stay away from anywhere near below the gully between the two Beard boulders.

. . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

. . (The print guidebook 2011 edition by Jon Crefeld has a boulder problem called "Splitter" somewhere around here, but not sure exactly what it is).

. . . ? name of this route ? . . .

Location [Suggest Change]

On the Right one of the two Beard boulders, on its NorthWest face, up in the gully, start directly below the "peak" of the "ridge" between the top of the NorthWest face and the South-facing middle slab.

Protection [Suggest Change]

To set up Top-Rope, see ideas on the area description page

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.

I think Splitter goes right up the cleft in between the boulders! Nov 21, 2016
