This is a short route - 7 or 8 moves.

Sit start with a hand match on a ledge on the south face just outside of the weird scooped out feature on the rock. Crank up to a good ledge. Throw for a slopey knob. Traverse right to some big jugs. Top out.


It's on the Bear Hug Boulder - named for the weird, cylindrical scoop out of the southwest face.

Hike up the main trail leaving the parking area that passes through the amphitheater with the wooden benches. When you get about 100 yards up the trail, there is a smaller trail that branches off the main trail and heads back down and around the west side of Riggs Hill. The boulder sits right where that smaller trail branches off.
