Original problem starts on two side pulls below the slab and goes directly up and over the cool slab. Can also be started as for Out Of The Blue and traverse right to the slab.

Excellent problem with a really cool move over the slab!


On the South side of the Surprise Boulder.




"Pleasant Surprise"

Photo is where I started the left side one. Right one I started directly under the slab, maybe on sidepulls? Cool boulder, huh? Took three years of going to it to realize that there were some fun ones on it..... Nov 1, 2016
This was our favorite on the boulder! Just climbed so well. I'll have to try it from your start next time I'm up there.

Such a sick boulder! We added a bunch of problems on the Meth Mouth bluff as well and then went over to a boulder West of here and added a problem on that before we ran out of light. Love this spot now! Nov 2, 2016
I thought there were a couple fun other ones on the Meth Mouth boulder as well. Cool little spot. Nov 2, 2016
