|Penitente - Inner Canyon
A tough, technical boulder problem starts this route with an intense mantel yeilding to an easy hueco-romp to the top. It has good rock and engaging moves, but it is unfortunately short.
It is in the side canyon that breaks right before the Virgin painting. This is the first route on the left side of the side canyon.
Bolts, stick clip.

Fun boulder problem to easy climbing. I would recommend a crash pad or stick clip. This is not a classic, but it's worth a go if you like to boulder.

Holy burltown! I thought the crux of this was pretty tough but doable, but the difficult mantle afterwards was a heartbreaker! Very desperate if you get worn out working the crux. The climbing above the crux is very nice, and you can tell by the abundance of lichen how infrequently this route gets climbed to completion.

If I ever did this again, I would bring a boulder pad and a couple of spotters, and I would call it a high ball V3-4. Definitely worth doing if you like bouldering.
