Description 

Scramble up the boulder pile to the right. Make a long reach to clip the first bolt. Continue up the lichen covered, steep, slabby boulder past one more bolt. There is a tremendous amount of thick lichen on this boulder that makes the climbing feel insecure. It also tends to flake off and rain down on your belayer. In addition, there is some loose rock toward the top.

Location 

Located on the steep slabby face of the boulder which forms the roof of Cave In. Go to the tree near the back entrance of the cave and look up.

Protection 

Two bolts protect the face. There are double bolted rap anchors located on the far wall. It is possible to belay off of these anchors by extending with the climbing rope or taking somethinng long to extend with. The anchors are shared with Rowen's Squeeze.
