Start deep in the cave. Please do not pull hard on the mostly detached block in center (should have an X on it). Use an undercling behind and right of this block in addition to the high left jug/edge. Still works as a proper SDS. Pull off the ground to match on the good huge sidepull, then bump out low and left. Continue out and up using dynamic movement. Crux seems to be pulling into the face, get creative! Excellent fun!...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV

The Hermit and Chameleon boulders are in what we always called the "boulder field", the areas i found known as the "Zion area boulders" are further downstream, followed by the Harvest boulders and then the area I found and named Stone Hinge. There is also the Flow boulder where i put up a bunch of stuff which below the the Zion boulders near the river
