Description 

Mr. Casual's Boulder:

If you walk to the Mr. Casual Boulder from the Autumn Boulder, the problem "Grange Hall Crack" will be on the tall and slabby main REAR face, on the other side and away from the main cluster of boulders.

There are two long erratic cracks on this tall face. Grange Hall is the left crack.

Stand start and work up the fun and easy crack. Straddle the thin fin top all the way up to where you can safely stand and walk off (may be harder than the climb itself).



Location 

From the "Shang-High" Boulder, continue down the trail to the second lookout (and walking up the stairs to enjoy the view of course) and continue past it. this part of the trail seem boulder-less.. Continue past the lookout for 5 minutes and you will find the seemingly short, elongated "Autumn Boulder". Upon further inspection you will see that the boulder continues underneath for about an average of 8 feet.
From the trail, walk around the low Autumn Boulder, through the clustered corrador (there will be a large, tall overhanging and stacked boulder to your right) and the big long slabby boulder at the end in the Mr. Casual Boulder. Walk around to the rear face to find the crack and slabby face problems.
If you walk to the Mr. Casual Boulder from the Autumn Boulder, the problem "Grange Hall Crack" will be on the tall and slabby main REAR face, on the other side and away from the main cluster of boulders.

The fin-straddling is technically easy...but really nerve-wracking!
