That cat is not impressed with the send.

RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This slightly misleading area is actually two boulders chock full of punishment, this "boulder" host about 6 to 8 problems (including variations) in the V1 to V7 range.

A good area to visit after warming up, the Punisher Boulder will deliver a few good minutes or hours of fun.

Getting There 

Use the standard parking area for Big Bend's main area and follow the trail north, parallel to the road. Head towards the obvious Flat Top Boulder, passing The Hueco Traverse Boulder. Punisher Boulder is the next set of leaning boulders.

Start sitting bear hugging what resembles a refrigerator using the right arete and a left hand sidepull. Slap your way up into a bad crimp for your left hand and find a pinch on the arete for your right. A few more stout moves puts you on the slab for an easy topout. The stand start to this problem goes at V4 but felt awkward since you start in the middle of the crux. Just sit it down. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
