A 25-30 ft boulder problem leads into the top half of Cantaloupe Death (5.10 climbing). Probably want to "sick clip" the first draw as its not a great spot to fall off.


This is the route starting immediately down and right of Cantaloupe Death.


6 bolts, shares the top 2 with Cantaloupe Death

It's possible to hit the starting block of Cantaloupe Death if you fall off in the wrong spot. I never though it was possible until it happened. Something to consider and I think a helmet is a decent idea now.

Love the movement and sequence on this climb. But this is definitely harder than 12c. Felt harder than most 13a's I've been on. The sand baggery is strong in Pinnacles.
