Southern Oracle



Southern Oracle is a beautiful boulder located very close to the highway. It is often considered one of the many classic problems to do in the Emancipation Area. Park for the Emancipation area and hike up the Emancipation Wall trail to the right of The Lies Boulder. After a minute or two of walking you will pass right by The Southern Oracle Boulder. Another roadside problem that shouldn’t be dismissed. Local Chris Hirsch added a new problem Miss Cleo V8 in 2018.

Southern Oracle  V5***

  Likely one of the most done problems in the Emancipation area. SDS low and work up a few tension moves on small crimps. Gain the slopers and fire to the top before the pump gets to you.

SDS on the lowest point of the boulder with both hands your left should start underneath in the schist band and your right on the crystals. Move up along the lip using not so good slopers. Turning the corner midway through is the crux after this follow up the highest point and top out on the easy top.  This problem starts on the backside of boulder. When facing Southern Oracle this problem is to climbers left.
