Start at bottom of slab. End at top. Climb down.


This is the low angle slab on the right side of the amphitheater. If you are facing the "jump start" problems, it is the slab just to the right on the big boulder.


Pad and spotter. It should be noted that this problem is the "walkoff" for other problems on this boulder. For beginner boulders make sure you're willing to come down the same slab before you get up there!

Nice easy problem. Very smooth holds that are easy on the tips, nice change from most of the area.

Downclimbing this is harder than climbing up since it's quite slick. Still fun slab.

Good Boulder to do laps on... watch the transition on the back side, slick.
There are two variations on this route - you can use two different starts to kind of mix it up and make it different.
