  • Description 

    Parasol is located around the right side of the Farview Boulder (as you're walking up to it from the trail). It starts low on some very chalked underclings under a roof. A long static move gains a decent lip hold, which leads to a couple of cool moves on slopers. A top quality problem!

    Note: this problem is way easier for tall people!


    A crashpad is nice (but certainly not required).

    That 'static move' might not be so static if you're less than 5'9" or so. Very very good problem though.

    This route is one of the best V5s I have ever done. This route is a little harder for small people (me being only 5'3"), but very do-able.

    The undercling jug is no more. I pulled on it hard, and out it came.

    No undercling jug and short makes this several moves on small holds to reach the lip.

    Harder than V5 now that holds have broken.
