Climb out this overhanging block using both aretes.


This leaning pillar is one of the first you'll see as you approach the Lion's Den from the West.

Definitely my FAVORITE problem in the Front Range. Felt like a very hard V6 but was one of my favorite boulders, movement-wise. Go when it's early morning or evening, so the boulder is not in the sun. Feels WAY tougher in the sun.

Great video! We had originally graded this thing V7, which seemed fair at the time. So yes, would for sure feel hard for V6. Nice send!
