Nic on the second ascent.


Start low facing toward the lake(Ian swears it's easier) and pull up and out boulder on bad slopers and powerfull foot trickery.


This boulder is down hill and north of exfoliator by about 40ft.

Props to Nic O for doing the second ascent of this thing yesterday! (Even though he's a dirty, dirty sandbagger (maybe worse than remo? Maybe?))

This thing gets a ton of sun and would be a great winterish project.. It dries really fast. So would a lot of things in this talus field.

The other day this was climbed without much difficulty starting facing away from the Lake.

I climbed a variation that starts the same but goes straight up the vertical face from the start. "Switchblade." Similar in grade.
