BETA PHOTO: "Plugged Nickel" Bouler Area


This boulder is low-lying and stands roughly twelve feet tall or less very close to Southern Discomfort, Slot Machine, and Violins. Start in a "cave" with a heel and hand on a bulge, left hand on the face on a sloper. Move with right hand up to pockets on face. V5 finish is up and left on a sloper, V3 finish is to the arete on the right. Very powerful problem and a load of fun.

Also, there are variations to this problem which make it harder or easier (like most things in the Rock Maze).


Kind of a downhill landing, but very easy to protect falls. A spotter would be nice, too.
