Avalon

Avalon is a tall black boulder that sits right next to the Hydra-Crack boulder. The hardest part of the problems on this boulder is mantling up onto the slab portion. Looks like a hold broke on Chuck Frybergers 3 inch punch (V7).

Stand start and work up the arête on good holds. Grab the sidepull feature on the lip and pull up onto the slab. Easy low angle but committing slab to the top.

3 Inch Punch  V7**

 Used to be slightly easier but one of the start holds broke off creating a much harder contrived start. Move up to the crux which is transitioning onto the upper slab.
