Overly Hung Boulder Rock Climbing
Overly Hung boulder is the boulder made famous in Chuck Fryberger's Friction Addiction. I believe there are a few routes up it but still looking for more information if anyone has it. Rusty & Mike Lewis got the F.A. on the easier version in the later 1980's. The Lewis brothers toppled the sizeable flake that was perched precariously above and to the right.
Approach Turtle Dome and Sledgehammer you will see this obvious boulder in the open when heading to turtle dome you either head past it or it will be off to your right
