BETA PHOTO: This is looking at The Hobgoblin.

This is the obvious hands to offwidth roof formed between two closely matched boulders. It leans at a bit of an angle, and the inside of the crack is polished smooth by the wind. A great place to learn some tricks for offwidth roofs. Pulling the lip is not too bad.


This is up on the hill, in the pile of rocks. There is also a short crystal pulling problem on the knobby face straight back from The hobgoblin, and another roof crack around the corner to its left.


A pad and a spotter are nice. The landing is nice and flat, but it would hurt to take a backslapper out of it.
