THE BEER BOULDER
GETTING THERE AND INFORMATION:
The Beer boulder is a small boulder down hill from Sports Action Arete. Has a clean landing and is one of the hardest mantles in the Baldy vicinity. Being taller likely helps out on the upper portion. Its not over until its over! The problem was first climbed by Colorado hardman Chuck Fryberger in 2000. It is a Testpiece problem that can either feel do-able or impossible. The boulder is South of the Lilypad Boulder. You can see it off the main trail that heads to Mount Baldys Backside on climbers right down the hill.

Start in the horizontal seam with chalk. Make a move to gain the sloper on the lip and then however you can work your way up the desperate mantle on tiny micro crystals. Its not over until its OVER!
