Description 

One of the best moderate problems at Joe's! Inexplicably not in the new, Caldiero Joe's Valley guide. Rated V5 in the Utah Bouldering guide. It may be a bit easier. Start matched on two pockets 5 feet up in the green streak. Climb straight up through edges, gastons and pockets to the lip. From one of two pockets near the lip, move up and right, reaching for holds over the lip with the right hand. The top out is not difficult if you find the holds. Tall.

Location 

Antaeus is on the Stigma boulder. Hike uphill on the trail, left of the Hulk, past Dirty Harry until reaching the small cliff band. Go through this. To the right is the Sining boulder. Go up and left up the small trail for about a hundred yards to the Stigma boulder. Antaeus and All You Sinners are on the north side of this boulder. Antaeus starts matched on 2 pockets in the middle of the green streak a few feet right of the prominent dihedral.

Protection 

Two or three pads. The landing is good, though the problem is tall.

Felt solidly v5 to me. Great movement.
