Description 

You'll find this boulder located just below the east face of King Dome and recognize it by the right-slanting crack system of Alfalfa (V2).

There's a few problems to be done here which range from V1 to V3 with most on good quality rock. No easy descent is to be had from this boulder - the best option is to place a pad on the northeast face (lowest side) and jump off.

Getting There 

Hike out to King Dome and head for the middle of the east face where you'll find the boulder a short way right of center very near the base. The approach takes 10-15 minutes from the parking area.

This thin slab problem is found on the west face of the boulder and is hidden from view on the approach.Mantle onto a sloping ledge to start then slab your way up the increasingly steep slab with the crux at the very end as you reach for the top. Somewhat reminiscent of the Hensel Face at the JBMF Area. Note: No easy descent is to be had from this boulder - the best option is to place a pad on the northeast face (lowest side) and jump off....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
