BETA PHOTO: Googol One problem on the Boxcar Boulder.

Description 

Googol One is a short, technical problem that climbs small crimps on a highly oxidized face.

Sit start with a left hand edge and a big right hand sidepull. From there, establish the feet on the face, move a left hand to a small edge, bump through it to a three-finger crimp, move the right hand to another three-finger crimp, then hit the big shelf and the eventual top out that lies straight up.

Location 

This ascends the North face of Boxcar Boulder.

Protection 

A few pads, the landing is perfect though.

Added a sit start to the problem today. Doesn't add much regarding movement, but it completes the line. Adjusted the grade to match my experience.
