Description

An eliminate/ variation linking "Final Fantasy" into "Lord of the Flies". Sit start as for "Final Fantasy" and make a long reach out left to a good horizontal edge that can also be used as a sidepull. The feet are good and you have to rock over the left toe and lunge for it while staying close to the wall. I hit the edge with two fingers. After snagging the good hold, hold the tension and move your feet in order to match. From here move up to two good crimps. Set the feet and make a jump move to a good shelf protruding from the face. This shelf has a small tree growing on it. From the shelf match and head direct on good holds to a fun topout. It gets kind of high off the deck, but the landing is decent, especially by Clough standards.
A very fun variation to do while warming up on this great boulder.

Location

Located on the Island Boulder across the road from the main parking lot. From the lot look across the road and you will see a clearing, enter the clearing and head to the back right where there is an old trail and a stone wall. Follow the rock wall and walk for a minute or so, this boulder will be around a short hillside and will be the biggest boulder around.

Protection

2 or 3 pads and a spotter. The landing is fairly flat.
