  • Description 

    606 climbs the center line on the slightly overhanging West face of the Gill Boulder, using small crimps, and technical movement. Be prepared to grab small holds, and stand on smaller feet.

    Start on an obvious, right-facing edge about 3 feet off the ground and move left up the middle of the wall. The difficulties end when you grab the large, vertical, right-facing sidepull with your right hand and top out using bigger holds.

    This problem feels a lot easier when it's cold.

    Location 

    This boulder problem is located on the West face, about 10 feet to the left of the Southwest arete. To descend, walk to the South side of the boulder.

    Protection 

    A crashpad.

    FWIW, the FA was done by Will LeMaire, 2004.
