I just did some exploring myself of this bouldering area. The wave boulder is very cool. I worked the left wandering seem a little bit and made progress. I think I can get it the next couple of goes. It looks like a committing dyno finish to the top maybe once that seam runs out a couple of feat from the top. I even started this problem from the big jug on the arete to the right and traversed low across the chest height seam until it moves up to the scars. I too would love some beta on this area, because I am for sure coming back.

I spent a couple days wandering around looking for problems here using the guidebook.

I was unable to come across Snowcat, and did not see many established problems -- perhaps I need the local tour.

The Wave Boulder is absolutely incredible, however. Really good rock and perfect height.

The problem pictured in the guide is a nice V0 splitter with a big dagger flake in the middle, and a committing few moves at the top.

To the left of that problem is a proud highball following an exquisite right facing micro-dihedral. Not super hard, perhaps about V4/5 or so, but very committing and thin. Beautiful rock.

To the right of the VO splitter is a tiny left-wandering seam that looks like it's been aided before -- little two-finger pin scars. Has this been done? It's desperate! I tried it for two days and was no where near close to doing it.

To the right of the left-wandering seam is a gorgeous blunt arete starting from a big blocky jug. Has this been done? It's also desperate! Great open handed slopers with a (potential) toss to a nice edge near the top. Couldn't do this thing either.

Around the corner, facing the road, is a great little overhanging problem that Scott Perry must have done some landing work on -- that was the most plausible explanation I could think of. Thin edges to start, to a big undercling with small feet, and up to a left leaning incut seam feature to a topout with nice big holds. Brilliant problem, probably V3/4?

The Wave Boulder is definitely worthy!
