Description

Start at the far right side of The Lobby traversing left for approximately 1000 feet up the hill. So many variations make the grade V2-V6 (5.10-5.12) depending on foot placement. Climb as low as you want or 50 feet off the ground in some spots. The first 300 feet to The Nautilus is on bomber sandstone. The finish is marked by dark walls with large boulders and gray shale to the left. Top out just before these boulders up 2 sketchy highball mantels to the top of the cliff.

The goal is to go from the right side of the lobby to the topout 1000 feet uphill without touching the ground.

Location

Start at the far right side of The Lobby. If you want a real workout, turn around, and traverse right back down the hill to your shoes. This takes approximately 3 hours to go 2000 feet up and back.

Protection

I consider this to be a solo due to the fact that you're bouldering without a pad for approximately 1.5 hours and there's no way to use a rope. Probably 5.10-5.12 solo, 6-50 feet off the deck. The grade is dependent on where you want to place your feet, this is really a "choose your own adventure climb". Just don't touch the ground.

A 3000 foot climb maybe should be less of a V rating and more of a Yosemite style rating perhaps? Sep 9, 2018

I would say 5.10-5.12 depending on what feet you use. Also, its 1000ft from start to finish (not 3000ft). Its 2000ft if you traverse back to the start. According to google earth. Sep 9, 2018
