The Leaning Corner Boulder

The Leaning Corner Boulder is a unique bouldering experience. This boulder sits beyond the first cluster of boulders. Follow the trail along a little canyon drainage. This boulder is in between the first cluster of boulders and the second cluster of boulders. This will be on the ridge line before you pass over the hill and into the second bouldering area. ( Second area is Hillside).  Look for a small cave like feature and a steep curving arete.

 

 

Leaning Corner V7**

Starts low low in the overhang. Look for small pebbles to purchase your foot on. Starts on the obvious hold with your right and a hidden under long feature with your left. Pull up adjust your feet over into the corner. Throw your right hand to the sloper pocket and hope it sticks. Getting here can be a crux in itself lots of compression either way you choose. Make sure to take a breath before firing through the torquey crux transitioning from the overhang out to the arête. If compared to surrounding problems this starts like flesh wound and ends like pipe streamed at Baldy. Great problem.

Leaning Corner Arete V3***

This problem is a fun warm up on positive holds the whole way up the leaning arête. SDS and move up on good slopers and pockets. Cross through and go for the nice holds on the lip. Throw up for the last good hold and pull up.
