Is this Worm Up?


Directly in the middle of the low roof on Mars Boulder is this nice line. Climb from the jugs in the middle of the cave up to a seam. Once your feet are over the lip, it quickly gets much easier. Either top out up and slightly left, reverse the moves, or jump back down - hope you've gotta pad or have good knees.


A pad and spotters are nice. High but easy to top out.

HIGHBALL. All the holds are great, but it truly is high. Stay calm and remember you are on jugs.
