Long reach


Climb the the Hanging double arete Boulder.


After reaching the first cliff band and the Project on the CCC trail head left into the talus and down a little. This line will come into view shortly. It faces downhill.


More pads the better. Flat landing.. as long as you hit it. We had 3.

Had to clean this thing a bit, I suspect this hadn't been done, but not sure. Either way a nice proud line with easy access. There's other fun stuff close by too.

This problem was first done by Eric Zschiesche. Maybe in 2000 or 2001? I don't know if it was ever repeated or named. The west face that is over a pit has a few problems on it as well done by Dave Reich and myself. We covered up the pit with some small logs which I'm sure have long since rotted away. Nice job with the send.

Awesome. Thanks! Might stick with the name just for the sake of clarity.. unless anyone objects of course.
