Comments: Lead this yesterday and it was great. I didn't notice a whole lot of spots for placement on the face but the climb was all there and didn't seem that bad. All I can say is FUN.

Comments: It looks like someone had a fire under the Duck Boulder. The roof part is now black and the ground below has a lot of ashes, so I would bring a pair of pants/shorts that you don't mind getting dirty or bring a few crash pads to cover the ground.
