BETA PHOTO: The roof, were you start the problem with a finger...


There is a lower crux and upper crux. The lower crux is finding proper foot position to reach around nose to hold. The upper crux is the top out. Becareful...there is loose rock at the top and tree to hit if you fall as well as a rock right below you that would cause some damage if you fell.


It is the southern most boulder. You will see a roof that is on the ground, the start is underneath the roof, and the start holds are the crack in the back of the roof. Go off the southwest face after send.


2 crash pads.

Going for the hold on the nose was the most technical. We called the route "Burlfest"... but your name is way more classy. There are some decent lines on the back of this boulder as well. I've attached a picture of my friend Sam on Arachnophobia. This route is on the back of this boulder. We thought it ran about a V2-3. But, it was covered in spiders... and we are pansies.
