This silly boulder problem is actually a combination of two equally silly boulder problems, but provides a good diversion if you're up on Flag and can't stomach the thought of another lap through your circuit.

It circumnavigates the little pee-smelling alcove on the south end of the Upper Y Traverse in a counter-clockwise direction, off-routing: 1) The Ground. 2)The rock slabs near the ground. 3)Any holds *over* the lip of the boulders.

Start on the westernmost boulder and toedance lightly east across "the loaf". Lean over to the protruding fin, which you then mount (1st crux). Surf from the fin up and left (north) to the adjacent boulder (this is Hornucopia). Heel-hook your way along the lip on good horns, doing your best not to butt-drag. This boulder abuts a south-facing red wall. Transfer onto the wall (again, no butt-scumming) but don't step low onto the ramp. Now finish straight up the face (Panache).

You can also reverse the process, or do an out-and-back lap at V2.


Crashpad, kneepads.
