    Very enjoyable climbing in and out of the large splitting crack. Tall.

    Location 

    This boulder is further east of the Goldy Boulder; climb the wide, south-facing crack in view of the trail.

    If you want to lead this, bring 1 BD #5 (optional) and 1 BD #6. If you want to TR this, #6 cams are your only option. 1 works, but two might give you more piece of mind.

    You can easily hang a lantern off the TR anchor at night to light the climb - great for the hot summer times.

    This is a good enough crack for pushing cams that I think in the future I'll bring a harness & #6 cam and just solo this on a leash to get smoother at the climbing w/ pro management.

    Also, I'd call this a 5.8 OW.

    I found having my right shoulder in from start to finish was key. Gets easier towards the top as the crack widens a bit and makes butt jamming easier. Just don't fall! It's a long way down!
