This is a mostly ignored boulder problem due to the old sharp stump that used to be right in the fall zone. That stump has since been removed and this line deserves another chance.

Stand start by establishing yourself in the large undercling. Crimp and technique your way up to the slopers at the lip, figure out how to conquer them and a jug awaits you at the very top.

Due to years of neglect this boulder still has some loose rock on it and the top could use a bit of a scrubbing, but get out at climb it!


If you are facing downhill with you back to Boulder X you will see two boulders right on the edge of the marsh about 100 feet apart, this is the right hand one, located about 70 feet downhill from Essentials. This line climbs the obvious tall face from the large undercling just right of the tree.


Couple pads.
