A sport route of a boulder problem. From the low right side of the uphill overhang make a move up tot eh sharp edged sloping rail that makes a rising traverses of the entire wall. At the end of the rail move around the corner with the hardest moves getting fully established on the slabby face. At this point the rail has turned to a horizontal crack. Continue following this left to the arete and head up the low 5th class arete to the top.

Whole problem is close to 100 feet long with the hard climbing over after about 50 feet, so perhaps a route grade of 5.13- might be more appropriate.


Move around to the back side of the boulder either by ducking under to the right of the Macho King start or my following a trail through the trees around to the right. Locate the inspiring rail and start just down and right of the end of it from a sit.


Pads and spotters. The landing on this problem changes quite a lot as you traverse with it being quite high off the ground in the middle section of the rail then a few transitions over stepped landing zones. The crux however is a reasonable as the landing has stepped up significantly at that point and is relatively flat as well.
