Big Whigs Boulder

The Big Whigs Boulder is a massive boulder that many climbers pass by heading to the Emancipation Wall. Its tall and in many ways very dirty. The problems once they see more traffic will clean up and a few may even be classics.

The Red Sun  V4/5**

Once this problem cleans up it could be 3 stars. For some the crux may be getting situated on the rock. Once on work up to the huge horizontal seam. From here get high feet and slap left hand on the arête. Either continue slapping up the arête or just dyno for it. Just make sure you know where you are dynoing to.

Birdie  V4***

This could possible fall under “Classic” with more clean up. For what looked like an easy warm up turned into a scary hard mantle up top. ( Crux) Good line get on it!

Slanderous Slab  V2**

Stand start and move up on smallish but good holds. A true highballish slab which is a rare for bouldering in this area.  Just don’t fall..

The British are Coming  V1**

Stand start and move up to a small horizontal seam. From here traverse a move and use your left hand on the half moon arête feature to the top.
