Doing the left hand crossover with Macy ignoring m...

All Vedauwoo bouldering is just slabby pebble pinching, right? Think again.

Great problem! Sit start on an overhanging jug, then work up with poor feet to a somewhat tricky crossover where you grab an undercling with your left hand. Get set up and do a cruxy slap up over the lip. Then follow the positive lip up and left until you can mantle up and over.

Great fun!


Look at the beta photo - if you walk across the drainage into the boulders, you are likely to find a faint trail. This is one of the first boulders encountered on the trail, and is the closest thing to the parking area.


Pad and spotter.

AKA Sloppy Seconds...super fun! Straight up exit 'El Diablo' FA Justin Gonzales; to the left unnamed hard problem starting on low wide sidepull and crimp...big holds to right are off. Tears the skin up!

I originally thought V3 was stingy for this problem but wanted to keep with Davin Bagdonas' ratings.

I went back here last night and I am convinced this is solid V4. So I changed it. Star rating stays at 4-stars: great problem!

Fun problem. I would say soft V3 though - sure it has small feet, but the holds in the crack are huge, and there are jugs right over the lip. It felt no harder than the other two listed on MP for this area.
