Trying not to get a hernia.

  • Description 

    Grab the rounded undercling with your right hand (turn your head and cough) then, using a small edge for your left hand, pull on with bad feet. A couple big moves with bad feet lead to an easier top out.


    This is on the North side of the Bear Canyon Trail about 30 feet West of the Hydrahedral Boulder. If you go straight North from the trail to the boulder, you shouldn't hit any poison ivy.


    1 or more pads.
