The best line on the boulder. Start on the white, low rounded hold, with a couple options for feet. Make a big move up left and another right. Then do one of the stranger moves around, and use the iron dyke to get better established on the wall. Then finish up and right.

Aesthetic, fun, and a little spicy.

For a little more power endurance, consider adding Dick Van Dyke onto the start of this. I've heard it's in the v10 range for that linkup, and that seems about right.


The most obvious problem on this boulder. It is on the left face of the boulder, around the corner from DVD, where DVD ends on the big white sloper jug. Finish straight up.


3 pads would be best. Make sure to pad to the right, where it's possible to take a big swinging fall.
