Hard to miss and rarely climbed. This unmistakable crack is easy to see from the Method Area and should probably see more attention. Stand start with a left hand in the crack and a right hand on the arete. Get your feet on, one against the crack and the other smeared, and fire for the V-slot at the top of the boulder. Stick it and the topout is easy. Miss it and enjoy the fall.


On the Outback boulder facing the Method boulder. Downclimb the back of the boulder.

This is a pretty rad short boulder problem, if it lead to more climbing it would get more stars. A very worthy short line.

I agree, short but sweet. Very fun and will only get better when more people kick off the crumbly feet.
