The Incubator begins clutching a left hand sloper dish and a (unfortunately crumbling) right hand crimp rail around head height on the bottom of the prow. Pull on, clamp with your legs and squeeze up through slopey sidepulls on the right and a good edge, then more slopers for the left, to a committing slap for a positive knob on the right. Grab the lip of the first small ledge, then commence the frightening topout, finishing on the ledge you step across to to begin Scrambled Egg.

One of the purest compression boulders I've seen in Tucson, the Incubator requires cold temps, plentiful core tension, and commitment.


Climbs the overhanging prow right of the start to the Golden Egg that points toward the road. The top out deposits you onto the ledge where the Scrambled Egg begins.


3 pads and a spotter preferred. Because of the nature of the climbing, you tend to fly off in an uncontrolled manner if you miss any of the slaps.
