Some chalk marks I left may give some hints for ho...

Description 

Awesome little slabby boulder problem up the center of the northern face of the boulder. Black lichen which is below the high water mark can make the first two moves a bit harder but some chalk or a couple tries should take care of it. Mantles and the tiny yet extremely sound quartz crystals are your best friends especially at the start. Most fun if you stay away from any holds on the corner to climber's left. My favorite climb on this rock!

Location 

Starts smack dab in the middle of the northern face of the boulder right above a partially buried smaller rock. Foot is the obvious nub at the very bottom and what ever divot you can get enough friction on. Mantles and tiny slopers are your holds pretty much the whole way aside from a small two finger crimpy side pull off to your left. Head directly up from the start avoiding anything on the corner (more slabby excitement that way). Top out and enjoy the view and remember to trust in the crystals!
