sharp, but fun. a lot of time was spent getting choss off to yield some fun moderates on a tall prow. Despite all of the choss cleaned off, this boulder matches the description in that of Tyler Mcmillen's guide for the Zschiesche Boulder.
park as you would to go to either middle earth or the helmet. begin the approach to the helmet, and branch off left as you top out the ridge from the hill below. a prow can be seen towards tucson in the distance. this is the green galleon.

Some really good problems on this boulder. Be prepared for a tricky descent. We downclimbed the backside, which is essentially a 30 foot 5.8 slab with a few really balancy spots. Have your spotter down there with a pad or two for protection.

excellent boulder! sorry for the confusion of its name (previously posted as 'the green galleon' boulder). needs some more cleaning, but in time will yield many more fun problems
