A bit hard to see, but a little cleaning could yield a interesting couple of problems. This is directly underneath the slab boulder. Around the corner a little downhill from the approach trail boulder.  I've been eyeing this slab problem. There is a clean line through the moss. I haven't had the courage to try it yet. It could be easier than it looks. <br /> <br />Directly up hill to the right from the approach trail boulder  Looks like some hardish climbs on the face, maybe along the edge. Head down the Hwy 184 approach trail, you will see this just back to your left before you get to the approach trail boulder  Two boulders uphill from the approach trail boulder. Mostly easier climbs here. Be careful as there are a lot of brittle thin flakes that could break off. <br /> <br />You can see the top of this boulder when looking down from the main face  Directly uphill on the other side of the approach trail boulder. There is some V0 stuff around the sides and harder line right up the middle with a gnarly looking mantle finish.
