On the Entrance boulder sit start using small crimps just to the right of the overhanging tree fire straight up to the horizontal on tiny crimps and over the lip of the rock.

ya man! What's happenin'? The other stuff in the park is eh... short and okay... Cool Hand Luke boulder is probably the only other boulder worth the 5-10min walk and really only if you were bored and wanted to tick something on ur list. That main boulder has all the good hard lines and plenty of variations to keep you going for a while. If you want ideas for other areas to visit PM me.

Excellent set of problems, only 15 minutes from where I work. Did Capn's mentioned V7 a cool spring afternoon in my Scarpa Vapors. Was an excellent time.

A fun V4: seated start, all the way on the right arete, diagonally up-left, mostly crimps, cranked a decent double dyno (for a 5'11 guy) at the top, two hands, finish about 4 meters away from the tree.

Hey! Whats up everyone. I have a quick question: I was at this boulder with my older brother yesterday, and I believe we were trying this problem. Is this the one that is on the slightly overhung portion of the boulder, just to the right of the tree, that starts down low with the left hand on a undercling ledge, and right hand on a small crimp with a thumb catch? first move i did was a hard lock off with the right hand to a bad crimp on the left, then a big move up to the top of a big pink feldspar crystal before a throw to the horizontal and topping out. it seems like there are so many lines and so many different variations on this boulder its difficult to tell if the one we did was this problem....
