Description 

Located just right of How Deep is Ben's Love on the Teflon Boulder (aka: Boulder 7), a huge brown boulder that forms the eastern edge of the boulder field.

Short and forgettable this offers a few good moves, but only a few. Clip a bolt and make the crux reach/mantle onto a small ledge at the base of a right-facing corner. Climb the corner passing a fixed pin and continue to the top and anchors. There really isn't any pro after the pin so falling exiting the corner is not a good idea.

The lack of climbing and few quality moves don't make this especially appealing - only if you're ticking routes like mad. Half a star out of five.

Protection 

1 bolt, 1 fixed pin, anchors
