As you hike up the approach trail to the crag you pass several boulders. On the west face of the highest boulder, this obvious splitter cack is quite compelling. Start on the left at a subsidiary seam and reach across into the main crack to get established. Jam and lieback the slightly overhanging crack to an exit on the right at the top. The landing below the route has a partly-buried rock and can be serious if falling off without a pad.

There are several other cleaned boulder problems in the vicinity as well as some overgrown ones.


About halfway up the trail from the highway to the crag, this problem is unmistakeable.


Pad and spotter best.
