Aaron on first ascent


Green flashes and green rays are optical phenomena that occur shortly after sunset or before sunrise when a green spot is visible, usually for no more than a second or two above the sun, or it may resemble a green ray shooting up from the sunset point. Green flashes are a group of phenomena that may be observed from any altitude and usually are seen at an unobstructed horizon, such as over the ocean, but are possible over cloud tops and mountain tops as well.

-This is a low right link into the high jug on “Horizon Line”(V6).

To the far right of the Horizon Boulder you will find a lower, chunkier, blocky portion of rock that is still a portion attached to the main boulder itself. Stand start on good holds and pull on. Immediately trend left to the bad slash (using the small crimp at the base of the smooth slash to gaston) and trend directly left into the jug high up on "Horizon Line"(V6) and finish as per.

Zach Bramel added the low sit start for Green Flash. The sit doesn’t add a grade but it’s the proud way to climb this one! Awesome job Zach!
