BETA PHOTO: 'Happy Boulder', south face topo


A left to right traverse on the steep South face of the 'Happy Boulder'.

Start way down and left in the cave below the start of 'Disco Diva'. Make some interesting moves out of the cave and traverse the juggy lip of the cave right with underclings and other good holds, and continue all the way over to finish up the arete of 'Big Chicken'. Makes those topout moves a little more interesting!

A good varied problem. The V2 finishing moves sure feel harder than you want them to be!

A solid addition to any circuit day at the Happies.
Makes the finish of Big Chicken feel a bit more real.

Be sensitive to those working other problems as you can tie up the entire boulder if you dawdle.

To make this thing really fun, start as far back in the cave as possible, in push-up position. Really fun contortions.
