Hunt came out from the east coast to visit his daughter in Boulder, and we had a party. Mount the large boulder and follow bolts straight up on big holds to the crux roof. This has fun moves.


Begin 100 feet uphill from Speeding Ticket at a level spot in the trail.


6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

But it's a fun hard move!

Easy climb with a fun roof move. Stay on the bolt line at the roof (moving left is easier, but not nearly as much fun). Roof offers some drop knee and thin, right sidepull action. Next move over the roof is a high left foot to a ledge and, if you can find it, a sick 2 finger undercling pocket. I enjoyed the 2 "crux" moves to practice technique.

Fun roof move then easy slab after that. Going left is certainly easier, but then you're missing all the fun! 10b.

Fun route. Crappy belay area (that is the whole side of this wall though).

I don't know how you would go left at the roof. There is a pretty obvious way to do the problem where your hands and feet are straddling the bolt.

The roof (crux) move is fun, and immediately after the roof was interesting for me as well. I was glad I could reach (I'm 5'5") to protect the roof before making the move. The belay spot was not terrible, but this whole side of the crag is a shitty slope fest when walking.

Very fun, nice bug jugs to the roof. Led this my first day out learning lead. A big right hand sidepull and a left heel up are your best friends to get over the roof. Good feet to set your draw and finish on the slab. Short and sweet.
