|Nick of Time Boulder
Start the same as Nick of Time, but instead of going out right to the huge jug (crux move of Nick of Time) trend up and left across the boulder's face on crimps, slopers, etc. Finish by climbing through the gap between the tree and rock (no dab allowed), and then "top out" on the ledge. The tree poses a lot of dab potential but can be snuck by with care.
This climb has some unstable rock so use caution and please do not intentionally remove anything suspect as it may be integral to climbing the problem. Also, use care not to aggressively brush. So, "Why would you want to climb such a pile?" The climb is worth noting as it is similar quality wise to some other established problems at Ute Valley. It is also pretty beta intensive and climbs very well.
A few pads if no one is spotting.
The boulder is between (slightly to the West) of the Main/Wedge Boulder and the Wave Boulder and has a cool tree growing over the upper left lip.
