This is the route looking down from the Orange Cru...


This route is short and has some loose stuff on it but it is fun. Start with your hands on a bulge that sticks out from arete and pick any number of feet. Move left and to a good incut hold, then move right hand up a little higher to "slot" from here throw your foot up near where your starting hand was. Then rock up to a higher sharp pocket that is just up and right. Then rock further up and go to the top. The topout is huge.

Down climb where ever you feel comfortable, there are many options.


On the tall boulder walking towards Orange Crush this is on the furthest uphill side about eight feet left of the chopped bolt that is on the tallest part of the boulder.


Pad and Spotter.

Does anybody happen to remember the name of John Mallery's formerly bolted lines on this boulder? I'm looking for a theme for naming the boulder.

I haven't looked closely in a while, but I seem to remember seeing at least one bolt hole. I'll check next time I go by it.

You can see the old bolts still sticking out to the right of this boulder problem. I don't ever remember seeing a second set of holes. I haven't looked for them either though.
