Description 

This boulder has some very good stone and a couple of problems. It may not be much to look at though when you first approach as the side you see is very short and capped by a tall low angle slab.


Getting There 

This boulder lies just below a large cluster of rock right where the ridge makes the transition from going up to the flat of the second step. See photos for more detail.

Mantle Problem V6 7A  NM : Albuquerque Area Climbing : ... : Mantle Boulder
From the crack move up to slopers at the lip. Trend left till your hands are on the slab and your feet are below. Make a commitling move up to a shallow scoop and press out the mantle, thigh scum useful.The rock on this problem is pretty flawless. It is just a shame that there are not a couple more moves before the mantle....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
