Start on the feature that looks like a lobster's tail. Climb up and right on easy ground (jugs and obvious feet). Downclimb/slide other slide on boulder.
This can be a good warm up in winter to get the muscles moving (do it in sneakers).


Just east of Hobbit Hole at the feature thatlooks like a lobster's tail.


Pad and spotter if you are maxing out at grade.

In my opinion, a great climb to introduce someone to P-way, or outdoor bouldering in general. Striking feature, obvious holds, pretty safe.

I agree that it's easier than v1 but who cares? It's a great warmup with a very cool feature and is great for first-timers.
