Description 

Seemingly made for climbing this massive block is heavily featured with cracks, flakes and jugs and offers an excellent selection of easy problems/warm-ups from V-easy to V4.


Getting There 

Starting from the far end of The Beach take the trail past the Methane Boulder, past the Steep Sharma Arete and wind up through boulders until the obvious mass of the Glass Boulder comes into view on the left. The approach takes about 20-30 minutes depending on your method of approach and hiking speed.

Sit start with hands on a good sharp crimp. With nothing for the feet pull on and bust a move up left for a sloper jug. From here pull hard and with use of a micro crimp gain hight to reach the better holds. Finish directly up and over.* This problem isn't listed in the Tram Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
