Cracked Boulder, Skofield Park. This photo shows ...


Sit-start under the overhang and climb out the crack to the top. One must use a painful finger-lock en route--best to tape up.

Standing start is V0, perhaps harder for shorter climbers.


Overhanging north-face of the Cracked Boulder, overlooking the stream bed. Scramble down to the stream between the Cracked Boulder and the Slab Boulder.


Bad landing; although, the top-out is straightforward. Crashpad and talented spotter still advisable.

Quite possibly my favorite boulder problem in Santa Barbara!

Per Edwards' guide, Le Fissure King is V0, not V3. "Bullet the Chisel Profits" is V3. Recommended.

"Le Fissure King: V3 **
Sit-Start the crack. A long and painful lock leads to good edges. Stand start is V0."

The Edwards guidebook I believe has Le Fissure King at V0 from a stand and Chisel Bullet Profits as the V3 sit.
