That boulder that is the size of a car? or did it break up into smaller pieces?

great route to get your stem on thought cruising lane was harder

easier than cruising lane if you know how to stem. the top is fun and interesting and a different climb than the lower crux. nice and long!

This was the greatest 90 feet of awkward desperation I've ever been on. Watch out for the ladybug city after the second ledge.
