Description 

MOW Boulder:

super fun!
Walk down the LRT past the top look out, passing the room and then following the trail past a sharp turn in the trail. Look for the massive "Mouth-of-Wilson" boulder which is large platform boulder with another, severely overhanging boulder on-top of it forming an abstract Pacman type mouth that is called the "Mouth-of-Wilson" from the name of a local community... walk just past this and walk off the trail to the back of the Mouth-of-Wilson formation where there is another heavy inclined boulder surface and a tunnel/cave looking opening formed by the leaning boulders.

this problem Starts on the slab/vertical mostly blank looking face on the left, across from the heavy inclined boulder to the right.

Start matched and standing where there is an overhanging undercling ledge/block portion at approx chest height (give or take), which has a good under-cling under the left portion of it, and is flat to the right portion. gain feet and move into the crimp above to start the traverse to the right.

this problem moves to the right through fun moves and small hands. stay on the main face and exit through the "Alcatraz" exit hole. all other faces are off until you gain the jug ledge at the end, and then the rear and right boulder and block become fair game. (pretty obvious when youre looking at it)
