Description 

Starts from the left via a mantle (harder) or from edges slightly right and then climbs the high-angled slab with thin, delicate and balancy moves off the deck. It's possible to use the arete on the right making this slightly easier but the pure line is straight up the slab. The easiest descent is to downclimb the southwest arete and then step off (or jump) onto the flat boulder adjacent to this boulder.

Location 

Left side of the north face, just left of Classic Curl (V0+)

Protection 

pad, spotter

Via mantle feels at least V4, but very cool move
