Crux is the center section after the overhang, pretty easy over to the right but gets pumpy toward the middle.


Just traverse the wall and stay low.

I'm pretty new to this site, but where do I find the coordinates/location for the boulder, I'm in malibu and I'd love to try this one out.

you gotta head to the home page of the site. The address for the base of the hill is 285-461 W Gainsborough Rd. If you have trouble look up Tarantula Hill. Park by the oak tree. Remember to keep it clean if you decide to go.

I worked this route in the spring of 2012 and called it Bump & Grind, referring to the movement thru the crux section (Bumps) and grittiness of the sandstone (Grind). Measures 40 feet across - makes for a hell of an enduro problem! The low easy footholds through the crux are definitely off, or would bring the grade down significantly. This project occupied a large chunk of my free time as an undergrad at CLU. Good times!
