BETA PHOTO: 'Happy Boulder', south face topo


For many, this boulder is the main attraction in the canyon. Home to The Hulk, Big Chicken, and Disco Diva, there's something for almost anyone - and this is just the south face. On the north face you will find a few fun easy problems that serve well as good warm-ups.
