|The Illmob Boulder
A thin, low-angle face with an interesting high-step and balancy crux. Stand start with a high left hand crimp, and a small right hand sidepull with good feet. Pull on, bump right hand up to a good incut crimp, then use your feet on a few little nothings until you can actually free up a hand. Balance straight up over the bulge to good holds. Fun moves, more technical than powerful, but rarely climbed and the crimps are a bit sharp.
On the Illmob boulder facing the trail, this is the taller face between the Illmob Arete and the tree. Downclimb the easy slab off the back.
Pad, maybe a spotter

Most of the holds on this, especially the better crimp up and right from the start, feel like they are going to break/rip off the wall. Not a bad problem, but the rock quality leaves a lot to be desired.
