Start in the right-slanting seam from a full sit. Climb the seam rightwards and then break straight up the face using small holds when the seam peters out. Balancy and very technical. An easier variation of the route involves breaking left earlier in the seam using better holds on the left face. This is Dean's Problem. There is also another version of the problem that breaks sharp right at the end of the seam across the face then tops out up and right. It was a project for a long time and was recently sent by Old Man Pete as "Locksmith" at V9.


Directly right of Invasion of the Pad People, in the unmistakeable seam.
