Description 

Mr. Casual's Boulder:

Find the "Grange Hall Crack" which is the left of the two crack lines on the rear main face.

Go left and away from the crack to start, beginning a few feet from the left end blunt arête. Find a shallow, positive right hand undercling crimp and your left hand will be a smeary bump. Gain good feet and work straight through fun, thin bumpy crimp holds up to where you intersect with the Grange Hall Crackline. Finish out the Grange Hall Crack.



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 cracks and slabby face problems.
If you walk to the Mr. Casual Boulder from the Autumn Boulder, the problem "Grange Hall" will be on the tall and slabby main REAR face, on the other side and away from the main cluster of boulders.
Find the left of the two crack lines and this line starts to the left of the left crack.

You'll have to pick out the holds on this one...it doesn't look like it's been cleaned in a while and there's lots of that big black lichen all over it.
