Surpringly few boulder problems on this huge boulder, the south side is horribly loose but the north west corner has a most classic traverse.

Spiral Traverse V1 5  California : Los Angeles Basin : ... : Spiral Boulder
Way finger intensive but classic.Up onto the flake and lieback it up then head right and onto the traverse. Easy stuff leads to the blunt arete, round this (last great hold for a while) and into the crux section of fingery holds across, with polished footholds to better holds higher up and essentially a handrail to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
