Crux is right at the start on a one finger hold, then the holds get better. One of the prettiest boulders I've seen. It's all by itself right on the river.


Sooooper obvious line straight up the middle of the boulder.


2 bolts, or solo the thing.

There is a sit start variation using a hidden hueco down low that adds a few letter grades. Doesn't really add anything fun to the route, jsut mentioning it.

I have a very dear place in my heart for this line, and encourage the sit start. Adds a few more bouldery moves to better round out the whole sequence. yarding off the crimp rail to the mono and then pulling off that definitely adds a level of expectation to your tendons. Definitely better as a boulder problem, but bring a lot of pads. Your topping out over a block.
