This is the downhill arete (facing thistles/brush) of the cube shaped small boulder in front of the main rock band...if you blow it, its easy to roll down the hill and get stuck with some thistles! (hence the name) Some locals called this V4 from a full sit - I'd say its V3...but very very fun, slapping and throwing...bouldery and lowball, unlike the majority of glen park climbs.

3 out of 5 stars Fun and not bad to fall off of.

Sit start with dynamic moves up to top of boulder. You can also end with a traverse off to the right -- harder.
