BETA PHOTO: On the warmup boulder.

Description 

This is a good warm-up problem (as well as the easiest at dark side, beginner problem which is a real problem) which ascends the left side of the boulder on which Mr. Wiggles and Mr. Giggles is located. Mr. Wiggles and Mr. Giggles starts on the right side of this boulder.

Start in the crack with a good edge for a right foot, and a right hand undercling and left hand in the crack. Make your way up left on the jugs on the protruding rock. Gain the larger ledge and top out.

This has most definitely been done before, it is being added so that it can be enjoyed in its own right, and so that there are more beginner/warmup problems listed. If you know the original name or first ascentionist, let me know and I'll update accordingly. Mr. Wiggles and Mr. Giggles starts on the right side of this boulder, and is not the same as this problem.

Location 

This problem is located on the first obvious boulder as you make your way into The Dark Side. It's about 30 feet east from Dasani.

Protection 

The landing is quite level and rock free. A single crashpad is sufficient.

Is this not the same problem as Mr. Wiggles?

As I understand it, Mr. Wiggles and Mr. Giggles, V1, starts on the right side of this boulder and tops out where the tree branches touch the top of the boulder. The right side is definitely a little harder than this left side and a bit more dirty. I added this route mainly because this left side is a good, juggy warm-up which is definitely not a V1, and so I had a hard time adding a tick to Mr. Wiggles when I was only really doing a V0 at most.

The photo description for Mr. Wiggles makes it more obvious where that one starts.

For an added challenge, sit start this one, and climb into Mr.Wiggles. Knee scumming, compression, and lots of slapping make for a riot! I'd venture V5ish, so far I call it Moving the Refrigerator.

Cutting right about halfway up this route to the big jugs makes much better finish and adds a little difficulty as well.
