Start just right (or on) Alma Mater and follow good holds up and then almost immediately right, traversing straight across the lip of the overhang, hooking and toeing feet as you fight the pump and move all the way across the boulder on good holds. Top out in easy terrain just right of a large scary block (which you climb below and DONT PULL ON). This is one of Mankato's better boulder problems.

May need a little cleaning depending on the season, so bring your brush!


Just right of Alma Mater and traverses almost the entirety of the boulder to the right (out the prow and around the corner before) topping out in easier terrain.


Great landings on this one, though a pad and spotter boost the confidence in the difficult section of the traverse.
