Force Boyle starts just right of the highest dirt slope around the right side of the front group of towers. The first pitch is mixed and the bolts are easy to see. (11+) Take a few cams to 3 inches. Offset nuts. Pitch 2 Loose and easy. Head right and then up a short crack to a ledge. Pitch 3. Follow overhanging hands to a slot. Climb out of it to a ledge. 5.10 Pitch 4. Follow shallow corner with small to medium gear and a bolt. Harder than it looks. Above is a section of low angle OW awkward with smaller gear in back. 5.11 Pitch 5. Follow bolts and gear in a corner. Fun, first bit about a 12 A boulder problem. Pitch 6 Move belay right and follow grotty overhanging corner to bolts. OK pro. Moving past the last bolts is probably the crux of the route at about 12 A. Above is easier wide crack. Pitch 7 an easy hand crack. We did not do pitch 8.

Descent Options:

Rappel. We went from the top of pitch 5 to pitch 2 on 60 meter ropes.
