Jared LaVacque lunging on Captain Kaboom.

Private property with public access. Be mindful to keep climbing accessible!! MORE INFO >>>


The crux is either moving into the scoop seam or lunging, depending on which way suits your style best. Finding which of the feet is also key, as there are many options.


Located on the south-side of the Captain Kaboom boulder. Start with right hand on a sidepull with the right and left hand gaston. Move up to two sloping crimps, and either move up left into a slanted scoop in the seam with the left or set your feet and huck to the top.


Pads and a spotter. Maybe a tarp for the base of the route.
