Description 

45 degree overhanging hands/fist crack.
The crux - turning the lip.
Burly. Big fists helps. For really small girlish hands rating be different (inversion?- maybe).
Taping for size ? - biggest sin.

Location 

Park at Roadside Attraction area, walk back to Arch Rock.
Start basically in the river.
Other side of the boulder has 5.8 7 inch ow.

Protection 

There two bolts on top of the boulder to set up top rope, but you can lead it with one yellow and 2 blue.

haha! I happened upon this route while updating the info for Roadside Attraction. Way funny.

As for River Boulder... way slick rock (duh) and having big hands do help. Almost a boulder problem but not quite. We always top roped it. Fun stuff!
