Comments: The roads have recently been regraded and are accessible by all vehicles except mopeds (but who wants Mods at the cliffs anyway).

Comments: I would check out the high country during summer. My favorite is Summit Lake area near Donner Pass. Bouldering Lake Tahoe-North/West covers that area.

Comments: It is possible to start sitting on the right side of the overhanging dihedral. Knee bar intensive. Much harder than the stand.

Comments: It is possible to traverse even farther from the right, if you are into that sort of thing.

Comments: This boulder is not list in "Bouldering Lake Tahoe, North/West Shore Edition". It is more fun than the boulder listed in the guidebook (closer parking, less brush, and you won't get your feet wet).

Comments: Jumping off the top of this problem is the best way off the boulder.

Comments: The grade is just a best guess. It is listed as a possible project in the Bouldering Lake Tahoe book.

I have put some work into this cool problem but I've not sent. Anyone have any beta?

Comments: The best hold on the route was flexing and creaking. Above that hold where once there were small edges, there appears to be only rock scars.

Comments: It might be hard/impossible to clip the anchors. I saw someone cruise the route and get shutdown trying to clip the chains. There appears to be a rock scar over the lip.
