Throwing for the jug.


This problem makes these boulders worth a visit.

Cool holds that call out to be grabbed, you just have to get to them. The crux comes in getting off the ground on some high sloping holds. Eventually gain the fun jug knobs and follow them up to a moderate top out.


Walk around the far end of the group of boulders and go behind the small pointed boulder at the end and you should see the face that this problem climbs.


Pad and spotter, while high for the foothills, this problem has a pretty flat landing and the crux is low.
