Description 

Again like the warm-up boulder, this wall has history. In Oceans 11 there is mention of the traverse line. Im sure the other stuff has gone, at least on top rope? Either Way Seth Carter and I re-cleaned this boulder after years of moss, and (re)established some good lines. Who knows if/when these were done?

The Red Line was always the popular "up" line on this stone. When Darren Odgers showed me around here years ago, we seemed to think it was V5. Whatever, who really cares. The climbing is great. The inimitable Joel (also known as Acid Joel... sorry if that's a deprecatory handle, Joel, but literally everyone I know called him by that name) climbed here TONS. Anyhoo, the rock is actually better than it looks (sometimes).

Me and Russel Erickson did half-hearted attempts to clean this (and others in the area) up in the mid 90s. There was tons of oak and moss. Never went back after a couple trips, hence why the area just got a glancing mention in O11. My guess is Joel and/or Kelly came along shortly after and did real cleaning. I was a little lazy back then. Still am really.
