DescriptionInteresting moves on the arete, but it's not clear how to keep it interesting after that.
. (So likely only worth doing if doing other routes on the Right boulder and can quickly figure out how to set up top-rope without danger of sideways swing).
Up the vertical arete, then gentler slab above.
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 ? . . .
LocationOn the Right one of the two Beard boulders, at the arete by the bottom of the gully which is between the NorthWest face and its (overhanging) South face.

ProtectionTo set up Top-Rope, see ideas on the area description page
warning: It's tricky to set up top-rope in a way that avoids dangerous sideways swing if the climber falls.
Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
