Thin line of the Southwest Crack.


This is a charming and aesthetic route on the, you guessed it, SW face of the Lone Star Boulder.

The thin crack leans precariously to the left and only widens (thankfully!) at the very top, where you can enjoy some honest to goodness hand jamming to surmount the topout. (Aren't hand jams cheating in Bouldering?)

A couple of variations seem appropriate to start, either on the ground where the crux will be to get into the absolute bottom of the crack, or standing up using good edges further along the thin crack.

Either way, don't miss the two finger pocket that unlocked the mid-section for me.

Linger for a while on the nice hand crack top out - enjoy the views - and then pull over.


On the, yup, right again, SW face of the Lone Star Boulder.


Pad is ideal.
