|East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only|
Some areas require a guide.
This problem would be ultra classic if it weren't for the other boulders adjacent that are difficult not to dab on. Start on crimps at the lowest part of the roof, and make cool moves along the rail. At the end of the rail make a big move to a good hold over the lip of the boulder. Figure out how to adjust / cut your feet without dabbing and move rightwards thru jugs to an easier but pumpy finish. If you are tall / strong enough to reach the good hold over the lip from the good right hand then this will likely be an easy tick for the grade.
Right side of the "Belly of the Beast" boulder.
Several pads and spotter, there is a hole you could fall into if you come off in the wrong spot.

Agreed, the rock to your left is a PITA
