Start as far toward the man-eater boulder as possible on the face opposite the trail,(south side). Traverse to the right staying low and not using the top edge. Climb around the corner and top out using either the slot or keep going to top out using off the pocket.

Please let me know if this is already an established problem, I'm guessing no due to the amount of moss I had to clean off. I'll put up pictures asap

Check out "Cube Traverse" - it might be the same problem.

Yeah I was looking at that one, but what I got out of it was that the cube traverse started at the corner and went across the east face. And it also says its only 15 feet, this one I made is easily 30 ? I also spent an hour scrubbing it so it looked untouched to me. When I get pictures up people can look and if its the same I'll take this down

From what I understand, "Cube Traverse" starts on the southwest corner of the boulder, then traverses to the east face. You can top out above the slot (just to the right of "Corner Problem"), or keep going until you hit the northeast corner, which butts up against the trail.

Of course, I could be totally wrong. Thanks for cleaning up the rock!

I used to do the cross cube traverse as part of a circuit at BFR so I do know it has been done before. Its surprising how fast moss grows. I would give the FA to the guys of the past. I doubt I was the first. Good long boulder traverse! Thanks for posting the problem.
