Getting ready to throw for the lip

Description 

One of the proudest lines in the park. Start sitting on an obvious good undercling, then work up to a desperate move way left to a sloping, friction-dependent gaston. Stick this, then make a couple difficult moves on slopers (a couple ways to do this section, possibly with a kneebar) to the lip. Top out, then traverse left on crispy rock and continue up the slab to the top of the boulder.

Location 

On the first large boulder that you come to as you enter Boulder Natural from the Reservation Rd. parking. The climb faces the trail and follows the obvious prow feature.

Mike. I changed the links so you shouldn't need to log in to flickr to see them now. I'm not comfortable posting them to the proj b/c they're not mine.
