The route climbs up a bulging prow through non existant holds. The climbing style is similar in nature to Blue with a really thin slab move once you reach the jug edge. Starts with your left hand on a small iron band crimp and a right hand on the higher iron band crimp then head up and left to a sloper then straight up to the top. I spent about thirty minutes cleaning off all the lichen that had built up on the boulder so I think it is an FA, but if anyone knows information about an earlier ascent please leave a comment.


Located between paint can arete and the bads. From paint can arete follow the trail toward the bads and it will be on your left right where the trail takes a sharp turn left.


The landing is flat and is on one of the established trails. A couple of pads makes this problem very safe.
