This hulking boulder is home to a solitary problem on it's west face -The Chube which takes a right-slanting crack to a rounded topout high enough to make it interesting. Descend by downclimbing an easy slab on the backside.

Getting There 

Walk 50 meters northwest from Gunsmoke towards some large boulders. The problem is on the west face and not visible until you're almost at it.

Have a good spotter just in case. If you top out, they can move the pad to the back for the jump-off . . . ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
