Squat start the tall face on beautiful rounded holds to a high ball top out at 25 feet.


From the front of the boulder, head right around the long, sheer face almost to the end. This problem begins about 8-10 feet left of the problem Packing Heat.


A pad.

The cave problem faces down a hill towards a factory. It's on the left from the photo I posted earlier. There is an overlap on the right side of the cave. Here's a picture of the line.

There are actually two different approach trails. That said, we can agree that that is the front of the boulder in the picture, so I will can change my descriptions on the problems I posted so they make more sense. The V7+ problem you posted was done by Dave Sharratt years ago, and he called it V6. Not completely sure which cave route you did as two exist. Jun 22, 2016
Where does the approach trail end up at the boulder? I've never been totally clear where the approach trail normally ends, as it kind of fades out shortly after the parking lot. It's probably been more obvious at other times. Have either of the routes I posted been done before? I wasn't able to figure out where the new routes are. Here's what I've always thought of as the front of the boulder:…. Jun 22, 2016
