Only the Lonely climbs out the overhanging bulge using holds on the left and right. Start out with left hand on incut finger bucket, right hand on good side pull pocket. Work up a bit on opposing side pulls to a big move over to the jug on the right. This is and extremely satisfying move. Jugs to the top.


Lonely Boulder.


Pads, spotter is nice on this one because of the tree.

This climb is excellent!

After fruitless and perilous pursuit of V4s at Devil's Lake, this was a satisfying return to a world in which not everything is sandbagged. compared to gym (or DL) sends, this was light for the grade. I second Remo's sentiment.

@ Devil's Lake check out the 45 degree boulder, Can We Cane Em, the Flatiron, and Recreational Vehicle for good and safe V4's. There is also one V4 on the Dog Walk boulder that is good and safe, can't remember the name right now.

If you start this problem as for Left Alone, you can squeeze out a few more drops of fun.
