Christian negotiates with the Green Monster.


The crux is down low and above a ledge with dicey pro.The moment your out of the crux stand on a big ledge where you will encounter a short offwidth.This offwidth is very secure, but wear pants because its pretty rough on the right knee! This crack is the most obvious line that goes up the middle of a bright green face.You'll notice this face from the Prison Camp parking lot on the left.Squeezing The Lemmon II... by Eric Rhicard says, this crack has been climbed but does not know by whom or when or how hard it is.This climb is #2 on the Boothill topo!


Tcu's, nuts and Camalots to #4. Chain Anchors.

I killed the monster. Dont need pants to climb. tuff beginning, then nice and sweet.Smereck never climbed it. I didnt see the climb to the left needs to be chopped. What a dink to put bolts so close to trad climb. dink, dink, dink.

Chossy rock at the start of the crack would probably hold if you fell on it but I wouldn't want to fall on it. On top of that you have to use hold that might break and force you to test it. This is an okay lead if you are a 5.10 trad climber but I wouldn't do it unless you are there and have a rack. A #4 Camalot is nice to have.

Easy fun off-width. Great for someone just getting into crack/off-width since there are plenty of hands and feet to fall back on if you're still practicing your crack skills.

To top-rope: Easy scramble up the left side of the formation to the back and onto the top. You can use old rap anchors to lock yourself off, then set up a top-rope on the chain anchors for the climb.
