Start at the large sloping shelf while sitting on the rock behind the boulder. Make long moves up the face to less than positive holds. Paddle up onto the slab on flat holds then move right to descend.


The left center of the steeper face of the Heavy Metal Boulder. Starting at the obvious sloping shelf.

I always called this one Death Metal because of the bad landing and to go along with the theme of the area. Very fun problem!
