In the picture, I'm one move in. The proper start ...

Description 

This is another ass dragging problem. Start on the right side of the flake that is a few feet off the ground halfway along the Jim Hall Boulder. Your right hand should be on a decent sidepull with your left on a decent crimp. Make a really long move to the lip of the boulder, go up right to a little tooth, and go to the top.

Protection 

1 pad is enough.

This problem deserves more credit than the above description gives it. Good rock. Fun moves. Steep. I imagine it would be an excellent place to escape the heat in the summer as well.

Agreed, steep and fun, one of the only steep climbs on Flag, the rock that was under the problem is long gone, and the aforementioned ass dragging ceases to transpire (aka you can now dyno the first move and let your legs swing through).

Very nice line...coming from a Morrison child...V7 seems correct...although easier than the Holloway problem in the Lobby (Morrison), I would have a hard time saying .12+ (V6)....
