BETA PHOTO: Primordial Soup Boulder - Soft stone!
The Primordial Soup Boulder - Reno Boulders
This isn't actually a boulder, it's more like a chunk of seabed that has folded over. It's quality varies from bad to terrible, but amongst the sand and choss there are several very cool problems.
While we don't advise anyone to try and top out on this structure, there's a couple great problems that move upward over the most secure edges and a wicked traverse across the very steep underbelly.
The stone is soft and it breaks, think desert sandstone only worse. But if you tread lightly, you will find some great moves across this face that will improve both your strength and technique.

This route is the second line put up at the overhanging Primordial Soup boulder. The rock on this boulder is 100% suspect, don't ever fully trust an edge or you'll crater. This thing is a beast, well overhung edges and a heel lock set you up for a reach to a small sandy sidepull, pushing the right foot into the divot here is the ticket to reach a crucial left hand... once established under the roof grab the bucket and mantle up and over.Delicate stone and balancy moves will test your technique...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
