Travis on Paladin's start.

Description 

Alcatraz Boulder:

Just one hard move, but so good!!

-Paladin: (pâl'ə-dĭn)1.A paragon of chivalry; a heroic champion.

Walk down the LRT past the top look out, passing the room and then following the trail past a sharp turn in the trail. Look for the massive "Mouth-of-Wilson" boulder which is large platform boulder with another, severely overhanging boulder on-top of it forming an abstract Pacman type mouth that is called the "Mouth-of-Wilson" from the name of a local community... walk just past this and walk off the trail to the back of the Mouth-of-Wilson formation where there is another heavy inclined boulder surface and a tunnel/cave looking opening formed by the leaning boulders.

this problem Starts matched in the jug holds formed in the horizontal crack line low on the boulder. Heel-hook out right and fire high into a difficult move to the left for a small, thin overhead crimp slot in the horizontal seam-line crack above.
(there are other crimps to the right but it makes moving into the key crimp way harder than a direct move) once you make the difficult latch into the slash crimp, lock into that hold and either bump through another far crimp to the right (see above) or power off the slash crimp to the high, far, flat jug hold above and finish out "Paladin" by topping out at the jug notch on the front, prominent, overhanging face...
