Description 

Nice open area to drop your stuff, some steep easier stuff and some less steep hard things. Problems exist on all sides.

  • Downclimb the side of the boulder closest to the trail on a slab that ends on some rocks wedged between the boulder and a tree.

Getting There 

This is the second large boulder that you come to, but the first one with problems. It is easily identified by the seemingly blank diamond shaped south face, the side you will first see when approaching from the parking area. It is also just on the other side of the left side of the trail where Reservoir Dogs is about 100' off to the right.

Slab V6 7A  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : Warm-up Boulder
Stand up onto the slab and make a series of exceedingly thin moves on shallow, sloping monos and edges to gain the slashing crack of the previous problem. Then easier to the top.Sadly a tree was cut down to do this problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

There are some harder variations to the sloper and pocket problem that finish between the two that are fun but eliminates.

Bit of a misnomer calling this the warmup boulder. Really crappy warmups. Go to scoop, KFAD or picture perfect to warm up!

Thin slab with obvious monos is called "Monotron".
