The crux move to the lip of the boulder, photo by ...

Description 

The awe inspiring flake out the frontside overhang on the Barracuda Boulder. Start on the obvious chalked block below the flake. Ride the flake out the roof using some combination of heel hooks, toe hooks and terrible feet out left. Once you have climbed through the flake, move up to slopers and a poor undercling and make the crux move to the lip. From here work up and right until you can mantle onto the tall face above. Wander up the 25-30 foot face/arete above to the top of the boulder.

The whole problem is probably close to 50 feet tall but the top half is low 5th class at the most.

Location 

The obvious flake running straight up the middle of the steepest farce on the front side of the boulder.

Protection 

A sea of pads and a spotter or two.
