The view looking downhill towards the boulder


Nice exposed sloped feature for the top-out. This small area holds problems ranging from V1-V7+.

Getting There 

This boulder is located just up the hill from Brown Recluse on the main cliff line. The top is a massive sloped feature and is nicely cleaned, making it hard to miss.
