Brothers Taliesin and Tristan clean an increasingly highball traverse on boulder #2. Photo
taken from boulder #1. The splash of color to the left is Sean and Jonathan working a project on
Boulder #3, the Battleship Boulder.
Brothers Taliesin and Teth attempt Confience. This problem on the bow of the Battleship
Boulder is a true classic. FA by Dave (last name unknown) on Dec 8, 2001. Seconded by Sean
Cassidy the same day. (Unless Jonathan did it before I got there.)
Sean Cassidy does Confience.
Jonathan Graham works a project just right of Dave's antisocial problem. Dave suggested
another project to the right of this one, but it has not been worked or cleaned yet.
Teth Cleveland does his second assent of Anchor Chain. (FA by Teth Cleveland on Nov 18,
2001. Seconded by Sean Cassidy on Dec 8, 2001) [V4 Classic]
Taliesin Cleveland works the increasingly highball travers on boulder #2. No one has been
crazy enough to finish this one yet (top out at the crest). It would be nice to have a couple of pads
for the end, and some people to move them along as you progress. There is also a VERY hard
project which goes straight up the face. Start on the little rock just right of the only obvious flake
under the highest section.
This problem starts on the back wall (sit if you want, but it does not add much to the
problem), then work your way out to the rim and then move right around the rim to finish on the
last big hold. I consider the variation which continues around the rim back to the wall to be a
separate problem since it is several grades more difficult. Multiple pads and spotters are
recommended due to the long horizontal extensions required and the sharp rocks and small
