DescriptionRoute is located on the north side (facing downhill) of the Upper Saddle Boulder. Start on the left side of the face and traverse to the right, staying low. The crux is moving up from a large pinch to the "Big Horn" located on the knife edge arete(Rump Roast). Moving up onto the north face early makes this problem an easy V2.
It is easily the best climb in the saddle boulder. Loads of heel hooks in the beginning section with bad food holds below the shelf, and becomes more over hang when at crux move to the Big Horn, then ease off on the arete.
Problem is in the shade all day!
