Start: At the left hand side of the boulder (facing uphill). Up the filthy wall with no pro. Absolutely worthless.

FFA: Uncle Tom Cobbly & all

Left hand arete of boulder. A tricky start turning into a fun climb on iron stone flakes.

Caution! A hand size block just above the second RB is very loose but not ready to pop out just yet. It sits directly above the best belay position so belayers please move to one side.

FA: Ken McKeon, 2007

Starts in middle of boulder. Three RB to share last bolt and anchors on Posture Correction

Has been re-bolted.

3RB to right hand double bolt lower offs. Start on right side.

Has been re-bolted. Carrots are no longer.
