The obviously "A" shaped boulder, a couple hundred feet north of the parking area.


Start low on the right side. smear your left foot, throw a heel hook, then fight your way up the arete with slopey and sometimes sandy hands and heels. Gain the jugs, kiss the top, and mantle up.

Descend off the slabby west face.

This problem was coined Leonidas by myself in 2008 with what I believe to be the FA.

Stick to the other side of the boulder for a couple dynamic moves, a 2-finger pocket, and a smear to the top for 'Xerxes'.

Madison thanks for your input. I have found it rare to encounter many other climbers out in Gallup. I did not start climbing at the barn yard until 2008/9 myself, but I believe the Barnyard was developed in the mid late 90's by Don Tamminga, Frank Sanchez, and a few other climbers from that era. Bob Roseborough and Peter Tempest published the "Gallup Guide" in 1999 and it mentions the Barn Yard as a bouldering area. I would like to hear any other areas or probelms you may have climbed in the Gallup area as I have been compiling a number of bouldering areas for the past few years that I hope to get up onto MP eventually.
