Best warm up on the boulder. Very obvious scrubbed line that if you stand feels V1 if you do a SDS it might make it a V2. Works up and right on scrubbed slopers to a jug midway up. Finish up the arête to the top. The best way off this problem is to just downclimb it. IF you start a move or two further left on an obvious scoop ( same for the sds) this problem is called, " Forrest King" and is graded V3.


right arête when standing in the parking lot at the base of the problem on the opposite side you drive/ walk in from.

If you stay to the right and traverse the top of the boulder around to the back, you can also easily downclimb and jump onto ground from a low scoop. Check this out before you do it, but it may be more comfortable for some folks instead of downclimbing this route.
