BETA PHOTO: The Red Monster Boulder


This is the mutha load of a boulder. I mean it is huge, soaring 65 maybe 70 feet tall. It looks like a giant grey and red wave of brimstone and fire raging up from hell, for the sole purpose of giving us something entirely to wicked to climb on.

Getting There 

This giant monstrosity sits almost directly behind the cow right at the front of the red monster area.

Start on a huge jug/sidepull/flake and move upwards via a burly gaston or a tricky (and somewhat scary) heel/toe cam to a shallow pocket. Move right to the two big pockets and top out above....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

This is one of the more remarkable boulders that I have seen in my climbing career. Perfectly flat landings for all of the problems, and all of the problems are classics; even the traverse on the front of the boulder is great.

The topouts though... wow. You'd better be mantling at V7 if you want any hope of actually finishing a problem on this beast; prepare to be humbled if all you can do is pull down.
