Description

A high and scary boulder with a low crux and exposed top out.  Find bigger crimps at eye level to start to boulder, or sit start on even smaller crimps for a V6.

Location

On the right side of the main face of the boulder along the trail.  Look for a vertical seam taking up the middle half of the face.

Protection

Lots of crash pads, if you blow the top out you'll take a large fall to flat ground or possibly land in trees.
