Aforementioned volcanic bulge


Start on the horizontal crack on the biggest face of the Hillbilly Highball Boulder between the arete on the left and the big ledge on the right. Stay just to the right of the arete for most of the climb. Skip the jug on the right about two thirds up and everything on the volcanic looking bulge on the arete except for the pinch right at the top of it. Top-out delicately on either of the two slopey holds at the top. Crux is right at the start but it just gets scarier from their. Watch out for wildlife in the sideways finger pockets.


Very large boulder near Red Storm Rising, Curse of the Drill, and End of Innocence . You really can't miss it.


A few pads: it is a highball after all

Nice send Jack, me and David checked this out but it looked to chossy at the time. Did you do any cleaning on it?

Yeah I cleaned the living daylights out of it. It's definitely a choss pile and super contrived but it's still a fun boulder. I think the bulge on the other side of the boulder and the slabby crimpfest to the left of H2 has got more potential than this. I just didn't have time so we'll have to get out there in the fall and clean them up.

Took a fall from almost the top on Saturday because one of the holds broke off, aside from every hold spilling sand into your eyes and a large hold breaking off on me and sending me flying, fun climb. May be a bit more difficult now that the easiest ledge hold is gone.

I did this back in 2009. We called it Mosstown. It was actually listed here. Not sure where it went. But it has been climbed before. My buddy broke a hold off a few years ago and badly cut his finger. This thing is choss.

Cool John thanks for the edit. I don't know much historically about the Hollow so it's good to have someone who knows.
