Great holds, cool moves, and one of the better moderates in the woods. It starts in the middle of the face, traverses to the arete, and then climbs up to a good topout. Sit start with your right hand on the obvious flake and left hand on a good sidepull. Pull off the ground and bump up to another left hand sidepull. Pop a right foot up, then move left hand into the undercling at your waist. Transition over to the right and bump out to a nub on the arete. Fall into a sidepull with your left hand and fight the barndoor. Slap up to a jug right hand and make a couple of moves to gain the lip directly above.


On the Forgotten Boulder, this problem is found on the back right side when approaching from the trail. Downclimb an easy face towards the trail.

This is a very high quality boulder problem! Fun engaging moves on a variety of holds make a great line!

Hope you didn't start the same way he did. He skipped the first couple of moves!

Where does it actually start? That seems like the most logical place for it to start, isn't that the starting rail that all these routes use as a common start?

From the description posted it seems like Mike and I just started matched on the starting right hand start hold and moved into a hold a few moves later on, eliminating a few unnecessary moves to get into the crux and meat of the climb.

My buddy did it the same way the description says and is isn't very different then the way mike and I did it, just a slight change to get into the crux.
