BETA PHOTO: Way of the Deer

Description 

Probably the best rock in the gully past the marina. Bullet proof granite that features slopey crimps and a bit of a scare up top.

The hardest move comes about 8 ft off the ground, but a mental crux for topping this guy out since you can't see your feet due to the bulge


Location 

Walk about 20 minutes to the left of the Pathfinder Marina into a gully, follow a dried riverbed to this gem of a boulder.

Start on obvious jug at about 4 ft, and climb straight up the horizontal seams

Sit start makes the route just a hair harder.

Protection 

A couple pads to cover some rocks at the bottom, good spotter

You will onsight the shit out of this problem dan.
however, i want to do some landscaping around the boulder to free up some more problems. there's a SICK overhanging route on the other side of it, but the sage brush is way too tall to climb it.
