This is a photo of me doing my first boulder probl...


This crack is beautifully obvious, and amazingly fun. Stand start using the crack and some face holds to the right, but use the crack to full advantage by arm baring and putting your feet in the crack. When the left wall starts cutting into the crack move up and right to the top, be careful this can be sharp at the top. The crux of the route is pulling over the top, so be spotted well please.

This is a great problem for anyone at all levels and a great first boulder problem (it was mine).

Careful the top is sharp in places.


main path through Black Jack you come down a small hill and the crack with be obvious and it looks fun so jump on it

Sit start it for full value! A layback start into a bomber fist jam will get you established. No harder than V1 if you know how to jam. I loved this problem, how could I possibly give a boulder problem with a fist jam and two useful heel-toe cams any less than 3 stars?
