On the back corner of the Blueberry boulder, the edge that faces the creek. Start as low as you can (sitting on the slopping hill is hard) and climb straight up the back without using the Arete. You'll know you're on the right route when you get near the top out and hit the slopers that feel like needles digging into your hands. The climb is not that high but the ground drops off fast and falling would most likely result in a tumble down the hill. hard to spot due to a tree in the way too.

Descent Options:

Climb off the low front side of the boulder.

2 out of 5 stars ouch!

the landing/fall factor on this one made me top it out. Without that I think I would have jumped off.
