Hirschman's Thumb V2 5+  California : Lake Tahoe : ... : Hirschman's Pond
This boulder is the nice looking boulder in the boulder field near the pond. It has a crack going through it that is slightly harder to climb than it looks. It was completed after multiple tries on the first day visited, first try the second day I visited it. It was recently cleaned and a new picture will come soon. A nice V2 to help beginners transition to harder routes....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
