This is the largest boulder in the cliffband and contains some high quality climbs generally characterized by low cruxes and thrilling high topouts.

The name comes from my recent purchase of Ocean's 11 (which is not too easy to come by). After topping out the Kiser Problem following a toprope cleaning and "inspection" I got a little slap to the face when Bob mentions that these methods are not really cool in the O'11 intro. After reading this I laughed and decided that all other problems I did out here would be cleaned ground up without prior toprope "inspection".

This boulder is the proud (albeit somewhat dirty) product of that ethic. Hope you appreciate it Bob...

Crux comes early in figuring out how to move up via some small but good edges with high feet. Topout if you dare (it's easy, don't worry) at the offwidth crack (don't worry, there are good holds in there). The climbing is somewhat similar in style to Mister Witty and All Mod Cons with a similar thrilling slab to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
