This line looks amazing, and is a fun route consisting of slopers and crimpers, and traverses from the bottom of the large boulder on its side, up to a sloped point, where it then tops out. Crux is the last move, throwing from a very small crimp to a not so awesome sloper point. From there, get your feet up, and mantel out. Be very careful to get a good spot. It is deceptive about where you will land if you fall going for the point. If you miss the point, or come off it, your momentum will actually carry you back towards the start (due to the steepness of the boulder, so position your pads further behind you than you think you should.
There are multiple other lines on this boulder as well. A sit start project to the travese is currently in the works, under the overhang at the left start of the boulder (V8/9?).
At a little flared corner near the left side of the boulder, there is a two hand crimp. Start there, and move left to the corner, and then work your way to the top out at the small corner. (V0) (FA Micah Klesick)
In the middle of the boulder is a undercling rail near the ground. Sit start there, throw to a small side pull crimp on the left, and then right hand to a tiny crimp on the right above the rail. From there, crank up to a small, but fairly decent crimp, and then crank to the top, and top out. (V7) (FA Rob Holzman)
There is a project in the works on the far right side of the boulder, traversing up impossibly small crimp on the overhung face, finishing on the point. (V9/10?) (Open Project)
Check out the beta photo for an idea of the lines.


This boulder is basically in the middle of the field. Once you get into the boulders, you can't miss it. Its the obviously angled traverse.


2-3 pads and an attentive spotter.
