Triangle Face (V1), Mt. Rubidoux

Description 

A quintessential Rubidoux slab, made more exciting if approached as a highball boulder problem and without dodging over to the arete too early. The old Hellweg/Warstler guide (that most everyone disliked) claims there are two distinct 5.10 routes on this boulder. The Fry guide probably gives a better description by stating that "many variations are possible." A good slab to play around on and develop that footwork.

Location 

The left of three triangle or wedge-shaped boulders

Protection 

Crashpads or toprope (kinda tricky to set up as I recall)

This is more of a high ball boulder problem. Crux is at the bottom and the landing is good and flat. V1 PG13.
