Description 

A rare Minnesota highball. Opposing full-handed sidepulls and heel hooks up a large face. Stand start at opposing side-pulls and head straight up.

Location 

Actually just up the road from the Cave Boulders. Walk towards the beach along the road about 150 yards and look to the right. The boulder is approximately 100 feet from the road.

This will give you a sense of what you're looking for:

Protection 

A bit high and not necessarily "gimme" at the top. Two pads and a spotter are recommended.
