Pulling hard on the razor sharp holds on Pink Bug.

Description 

Located between the road and Half Dome Boulder, this boulder has a couple of slab problems which have the ability to both inspire and frustrate in equal measure.

Pink Bug at first inspection looks blank and impossible, but try and hard and you will be rewarded.

Getting There 

Hike up from the bridge. As you approach the rocks this boulder is one of the lowest.

Featured Route For Pink Boulder
"Pink Bug" follows the right profile of this boulder. While footholds exist at the start, there is not much for the hands. A nice piece of stone that has yet to be tagged and destroyed by paint (knock on granite).

Pink Bug V7 7A+  CA : Inland Empire : ... : Pink Boulder
Rating of "V7" is an estimate. This is an extremely thin (read: blank) boulder problem that requires skills and strength of a different sort than those en vogue these days. Rather than fret over the grade, have fun seeing how far you can inch your mass up this steep, smooth, beautiful slab of perfect sunset-toned Rubidoux granite. The landing is poor, although this could be remedied with creative configuration of crash pads....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
