This boulder is located on the Lobster Claw Boulder directly to the right. Start on an obvious jug, and climb straight out the belly.


Near Emerald Lake, this is on the same boulder as Lobster Claw.


This is best when done early season, since the snow helps protect the fall a bit. This can be done after the snow melts but would require more pads.

Definitely not an FA. I did this years ago, pretty sure Potter and Belcer did this long before anyone else. Good problem! Aug 9, 2017
