Description

Start Low on the left side of the face with a jug and crimp. Cross to a side-pull and pull-through to a another side-pull. Match and get a heel on the edge of the boulder and throw for a sharp sloper. Use slots to get up to the very tip of the boulder and top-out.

Location

This boulder is about 2/3 of the way along billy goat C starting from Carderock. The hike is about ten minutes from Carderock and this boulder is a definitely a must climb if you are looking for some moderate bouldering.

Protection

The landing is flat but is next to a trail so be courteous to hikers.
