The clean, ever-shaded, green-streaked panel.
Easy approach climbing to a hard six move boulder with unique grips. High quality rock, movement, and aesthetics. Maybe the best of the 'roped boulders' here.
Can only say with confidence that it's somewhere between V8 and V10, I wouldn't call myself a boulderer.
The crux felt low percentage and required good (very cold and dry) conditions. I never got close unless I was also numbing out by the end. Has the kind of holds you hit dynamically but precisely, and then have little hope of readjusting on, compounding any errors or hesitation. Maybe for some could be easier than EOES, but for me felt harder, and also less tweaky. Similar angle to the RIP, but with more edgework than pockets, and almost zero endurance required.
all the stars, with the obvious qualifier that it's a 20 foot sport route, do as you will...
Up the hill to the left, around the corner from the 'benders and the swingers. A small cave feature low and a green panel above lurking behind a switchback in the trail
