Description 

The First Overhang boulder includes a few problems on the south face of the boulder, including the classic of the same name. A good midday boulder in the winter, or mornings/evenings during the warmer months.


Getting There 

Drive 1.7 miles up Flagstaff road to the parking area for the Y traverse. The obvious boulder is about 10 yards north of the small parking area.
