Shane Messer dynoing to the lip on "O.A."...


This littlish boulder is egg shaped (the egg would have been a good name if it weren't so unoriginal) and appealing to the eyes. The back side of "Cap-Gun" is much overhung while the first, downhill-most side is relatively vertical and even slabby at a section. It is a free standing boulder and holds lines all the way around it. The climbing here is crimpy, ledgy, and has an awesome sloping lip. This boulder has safe landings all around as well....

Getting There 

if you pass the roadside boulder and follow the streambed back and slightly uphill, this boulder will be the next one you come to.
