Border Crossing is a variation that combines Showtime with the upper part of The B Boys. It starts up Showtime, then cuts right and climbs the left-facing corner of The B Boys. This corner is just right of the crack system on Dutch Treat.
P1: Start by climbing Fine Fir, Before The Deluge, or Crackdown to their common anchor, on a pedestal about 65' up.
P2: (Border Crossing): Start up the gully right of the anchor, place a green Camalot and move right onto the wall. Climb up to a bulge, clip a bolt, and climb up and right onto an arete. Climb a hand crack to an alcove.
At this point, Showtime works up cracks left of the alcove. Border Crossing climbs up the alcove to a slot. Either climb up the slot, or traverse right below it. Traverse right on a ledge, past the cracks of Dutch Treat, to a left-facing corner that is the top part of The B Boys. Climb the corner and cracks to the top of the pinnacle, and a two-bolt anchor that is shared with The B Boys and Local Hero. 5.8, 135'.
Descent: Rappel 95' down to the anchor on The B Boys, then rappel 100' down to a gully above the start of Local Hero. Do an easy 20' downclimb to the bottom of the gully. Take a path to the left to get back to The Garden.
The Garden area, up a left-facing dihedral in the center of the pillar on the north face.
