Cleat Morris solving the crux on Big Trouble...


very tricky and thin sequence gets you off the ground to the first bolt. then easy run to the top.
stick clip is recomended


5th route on the wall starts on the big boulder

I have no FA info, but this one is supposed to be called "Big Trouble in Little China." UPDATE: I just got (11/18/16) a PM saying that Johnny Arms has the FA, and he named it Groundhog (because he bolted it on Groundhog's Day).

Solid V3/V4 boulder problem up to just above the fist bolt, followed by easier 5.10 climbing above.

Heard this one called "groundhog day" because you work that move so many times.

If you don't have a stick clip, it's possible to climb the route to the left and swing over to clip the first bolt.
