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.

Start with bad feet but the pocket is good. Make a big move to the almost too good to be true pocket with your left, throw a heal on the shelf and pull through to the edges just below the top.*Or for a harder, V5ish variation, pull to the perfect pocket with your right hand then make moves up and left to pockets and edges below the lip, continuing up and left till you reacha big flake/horn and top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

The problems as I know them, from left to right.
  • V4 Crack Traverse
  • V6 Slab
  • V2 Steep arete
  • V? Dani's Mantle Proj
  • V2 Cave
  • V3 Slopers
  • V1 Pocket
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".
