Really nice stem chimney that puts you on top of either one of two boulders. Clip 3 bolts on the right boulder up to a stance on top of the right boulder, then continue up to another clip on the opposite boulder and to the chain anchors at the top. Moderate crux moves are getting off the ground and just below the top. This is a nice way to get on top of "the Most High Boulder" to set up TRs.

Nice climb. Climb the chimney and then transition to the Most High boulder where the 4th bolt is within easily reach. There is a deep pocket that makes an excellent grab with both hands just below the chains and hard to see until you're up there.
