Alex throwing for the jug.


Start on the low side of the boulder with a slopey heel hook. Work the slopey edge out to the jug on the tip and mantle the slopey lip.

Direct start:
Start at bottom right of overhang and crank up to ledge. Head left to jug at tip and mantle.

Traverse Variation:
Start on low side of boulder, work out to jug, continue to high side of lip for slightly easier mantle.


South side of cove. More boulders yet to be climbed.


Spotter. Inflatable raft.
