Welcome to The Tugboat, where short powerful pulls are king. Surf the right arete of the formation using pockets on the face and holds on the black slab. Watch out for a stout finishing pull. This boulder is crazy unique as it fell in an orientation where the pocket lines are vertical rather than the horizontal typical for Wyoming. Short but well worth the quick adventure over from the steep Bermuda Triangle!


The Tugboat formation is reached by a small trail that starts near the route "Too Tall for Twomey". Trend left after you reach The Shipyard Proper at a cairn and sidehill for about 100 yards. The formation is on the hill above you.
