The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This balancy number is good line for finesse climbers that like to stand on their feet. There are some small crimps on this problem, but its never really necessary (or helpful) to bear down on them.

Begin standing a few feet left of the arete at a big sloper at around thigh-height. Start with your right hand on the high crimp side pull in the seam, and the left hand on the highly chalked sloper. Stand up onto the face and work the sidepulls and rounded knobs up to the obvious horizontal rail ~2 feet below the lip. Snatch the rail and top out easily.


Location 

Around the arete to the left from Little Something for the Effort, on the Caddyshack Boulder.


Protection 

One pad is probably enough.

I concur. Not as cool looking, but right up there with The Ladder in terms of quality for this grade range.
