Description 

Mike-N-Ike Boulder:

!!Such a good line!!

("Ballad" for short) Walk down the trail past the top lookout, passing The Room, MOW, and as soon as you pass MOW, look in front of you at the boulder in front of the curve in the trail and this is Mike-N-Ike. walk around to the heavy overhang on the right end of the main front face along the trail side of the boulder. Look for the jagged crack line on the left side of the severe overhang. this crack is off... Ballad climbs the phenomenal features to the right of the crack and tops out to the right of the start. If you use the crack whatsoever, you are not climbing the problem.

Sit start very low on two opposing incut crimp hands, with feet below on whats good. toss high and right to a long solid rail, and then with your left to a flat sidepull and then to another higher incut. establish on incuts and launch right to a deep sharpish, massive ledge. continue to top out (tricky until you figure it out).
