Description:

Start on top of the pointed flake next to C.C. Crack. Climb the face(hard) to a sloping ledge and traverse left to a bolt belay. Jam or layback the corner crack(crux)to another sloping ledge and work up to the belay below an overhang. Grunt your way over this overhang and belay or continue up the easy looking (but hard) inside corner to a small belay ledge. Traverse left to a very nice hand crack and top out. Lots of hard (5.10) climbing on this one...multiple belays give you a chance to rest and reduce rope drag. to quote the 1970 edition of High over Boulder..."Involving some of the most severe and sustained 5th class climbing in the Boulder area,this route incites respect in all acrobats with a lust for the maximum difficulty" jwood's note: I found the description slightly misleading, as it was in fact a one-move, very short route. And pretty sand-bagged in my opinion.

4 out of 5 stars Classic, somehow

This route is basically a series of boulder problems with ledges in between. Still, though, it is classic. It has something to do with the history and how everything is harder than it looks. If it's humid it feels impossible.
