Description 

Despite it's obvious and convenient location, this highball boulder problem somehow eluded mention in the guide books. Nevertheless, it's a fun and exciting problem. Just don't fall if you decide to boulder it.

A couple face moves put you into a hand crack that otherwise requires a flared and overhanging start. It becomes a lower angle fist crack as you gain height. The crux comes early, it gets easier once you're in the crack.

Location 

Located in the trees West of the Kingdom Boulder. It can be found along a well used and obvious foot trail. It is between the parking lot and Solo Boulder.

Protection 

Unfortunately, there is a boulder below this crack that creates a pretty ugly landing hazard. Pads might help. People sometimes rope up for it.
