Description 

Start low with opposing sidepulls. Move up to a righthand incut on the face and a left hand sloper, and stick the flat hueco. Big wingspan neccessary!

Location 

Take the right into Dinky Creek Road and drive for a few miles (not exactly sure how many anymore). Take a right onto a dirt road and after 2 minutes some boulders appear as well as a campground. This climb is on the backside of a boulder near the parking area. A lot of boulders in the area have unclimbed lines.

Protection 

A few pads, as the landing and dyno need protecting.

FUN CLIMB, HEIGHT DEPENDENT, GOOD HOLDS BETWEEN BIG SPANS. COULDN'T REACH LEFT HAND START HOLD FROM SITTING, STARTED LEFT HAND 1 MOVE (2FT) LOWER THAN FA. DID WITHOUT A PAD, ENTRY LEVEL V6.

CLIMBED THE TALL WEST FACE OF THE BOULDER, RIGHT SIDE V2/3, AND LEFT SIDE V0. BOTH START FROM SITTING IN MIDDLE OF FACE. NOT SURE IF THEY HAVE BEEN DONE, REGARDLESS BOTH ARE REALLY GOOD FOR THE GRADE.
