Description 

This is a nice and tall widecrack boulder problem. It starts on a shelf about seven feet off the ground, then goes quickly from hands to fists to offwidth. There is an awkward transition from fists to offwidth, and one or two technical moves of offwidth at the top, but otherwise the crack is straightforward. You want to be quite comfortable on low level 5.10 offwidth for this one. A very nice highball.


Location 

When walking to Reynolds Hill along 700D, shortly after leaving the parking lot you will see a very large and distinct ponderosa a little ways off the road to the left. Hike over to this ponderosa and continue uphill behind it, trending slightly right. After a couple hundred yards you will encounter a fin of rock with two tall offwidth cracks that generally face north east, the bottoms of the cracks obscured by bushes. This is the right crack.


Protection 

Pads or balls.

Isn't it Phares?

Good stuff guys! Sorry I never get out. This 9-5 crap is killing me!

Fixed it, Brian. These are really good problems (Peach Cobbler being the other), IMO. Probably some of the best 5.10 offwidth highballs in Vedauwoo.
