Voted 10/10

This little gem deserves a page on summitpost. I would be interested to hear how you got up the summit boulder. I resorted to rope tricks.

What is the summit boulder rated?

I believe someone said that Gerry Roach rated the easiest route 5.9. I have climbed up to 5.10a elsewhere and I'm still not sure I could climb this without using rope tricks. The west side of the boulder is easiest; if you can get past the overhang it is a rather straightforward slab.

I re-visited this boulder with some climbing friends, a crash pad, and all the climbing gear that we could possibly need. After numerous attempts we used a dead tree to get us up the first part but we did successfully climb the last half. Careful, my rope was cut 1/2 through the core from the sharp rocks. My 60m rope is now a 58m rope :(

for putting up this page, and giving me a chance to brag about one of my weirder accomplishments. Kudos for managing to climb it the way you did!

Thank you, glad you made it up there even with all that rotten rock. Standing on top of that huge thing certainly makes for some good pics.
